No, and he seems in disgustingly good health. I just consider him an obstacle and possibly the least likely of any of the '08 primary candidates to do what is needed in this situation. So it is hard not to wish he would leave in a timely fashion. It would be great if he would accept the position of UN General Secretary, President of the World Bank, etc. and so build an even more fabulous resume.
