From a Newsweek poll:

The president’s approval ratings are at their lowest point in the poll’s history — 30 percent — and more than half the country (58 percent) say they wish the Bush presidency were simply over, a sentiment that is almost unanimous among Democrats (86 percent), and is shared by a clear majority (59 percent) of independents and even one in five (21 percent) Republicans. Half (49 percent) of all registered voters would rather see a Democrat elected president in 2008, compared to just 28 percent who’d prefer the GOP to remain in the White House.

The deep numbers paint a similarly grim picture.

Can’t we just be done already? Can’t Bush and Cheney acknowledge their failure, step aside and let President Pelosi handle things until 2009?
