CRAWFORD, Texas (CNN) - President Bush keeps saying he doesn't want to wade into the 2008 presidential election, but he proved again on Saturday that he just can't seem to resist putting at least a toe in the water.
Last week, the President took a couple of pokes at Sen. Barack Obama (D-Illinois) for suggesting al-Qaeda is not in Iraq ("I believe Senator Obama better stay focused on his campaign with Senator Clinton, neither of whom has secured their party's ... nomination yet") and for saying it's okay for a commander-in-chief to meet with the leaders of Iran or Cuba ("sitting down at the table, having your picture taken with a tyrant such as Raul Castro, for example, lends the status of the office and the status of our country to him").
On Saturday, a Danish reporter tried to get the President to engage again. At a joint press conference with Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen here on his Texas ranch, Bush was asked to name the parts of his foreign policy he sees most threatened by the leading Democratic presidential candidates.
"It's a very clever attempt by you to drag me into the middle of the 2008 campaign, similar to what these two fine folks - three fine folks have been doing," Bush said as he gazed over me and two of my American colleagues.
Then, of course, Bush decided to weigh in ever so slightly. "But I will tell you this: The issue in America is going to be, who will keep taxes low, and who will be tough in protecting America," he said. "And our candidate for President is going to win because he will have convinced the American people to this truth."
Bush later revealed he's already voted by mail in Tuesday's Texas primary, where there is early voting, though he did keep one secret: "I'm not telling you who."
