Zarqawi Endorses Bin Laden  

And thinks Bin Laden is the "best leader for Islam". Zarqawi is also now officially a member of Al Qaeda.
The statement ran a Quranic verse encouraging Muslim unity and said al-Zarqawi considered bin Laden “the best leader for Islam’s armies against all infidels and apostates.”

Bush Administration responds:
“But we’ve always said there were ties between Zarqawi and al-Qaida, which underscores once again why Iraq is the central front in the war on terror,” White House spokesman Trent Duffy said in Washington. “It’s also proof positive of why the president’s firm resolve to fight terrorists overseas so we don’t face them in America’s neighborhoods is the only clear way to prevail.”

Polls have the race close, with Bin Laden leading the Popular Vote, and his view of the Middle East getting more attention than Bush's.
