Hair Watch: Day 6

The Cue-Ball Factor: With Cheney’s chrome-dome quickly becoming a liability, there’ve been numerous stories this week about the possibility of replacing him on the GOP ticket with either Powell or McCain. George Stephanopoulos even quoted a poll on GMA that said Bush would get a fifteen-point bump if he made the Cheney-Powell switcharoo. Of course, there’s little to no chance of that happening. Still, just imagine the effect that Powell could have if he not only joined the ticket, but also ditched that grizzled-old-soldier buzz cut for a spiffy new ‘fro. Combine that with his fluency in Yiddish and he just might become the most formidable politician since Harrison Ford in Air Force One.
