A new Quinnipiac poll has some good news for the president -- his lead over various Democrats has (probably as the result of economic and turkey hype) expanded somewhat.

But here's what I want to know: If Howard Dean is, among the top contenders, uniquely unelectable, why is he trailing Bush by roughly the same margins as the guys who are seen as more mainstream?

Here are Bush's leads, according to Quinnipiac:

* 51 -- 40 percent over Dean

* 51 -- 40 percent over Lieberman

* 51 -- 39 percent over Kerry

* 53 -- 38 percent over Gephardt

* 50 -- 41 percent over Clark

Raise your hand if you see a statistically significant difference.
