    Try the rope-a-dope, guys 

    President Bush and his challenger, Sen. John Kerry, have adopted boxing metaphors for the final rounds of the presidential election campaign. The president has borrowed from Joe Louis to say of Kerry: ``He can run from his record, but he can't hide.'' While Kerry is counter-punching with Muhammad Ali's taunt to George Foreman: ``George, is that all you've got?'' If these political pugilists aren't careful their emotions could get the better of them and the next thing you know one of them will be biting off the other's ear, ala that great former Ohioan, Mike ``Hungry Man'' Tyson vs. Evander Holyfield.
