** FILE ** President Bush and first lady Laura Bush, left, walk down the stairs of Air Force One with their dog Barney in this Monday, Aug. 13, 2007 file photo, in Waco, Texas. The door is closing on President Bush's opportunity to shape domestic policy. His strength is sapped by an unpopular war, Democrats are running Congress, and the 2008 presidential election is in full roar, distracting attention from the president's priorities. With dwindling options, Bush has decided he might get more done in his final months by going it alone. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)
