The Ghost of Jackson!

Glenn Reynolds and others have brought up a good point comparing Zell's speech to THE JACKSONIAN PERSUASION. It then dawned on me, Zell's little encounter with Chris Matthews where he, in essence, challenged him to a duel was not the rantings of a crazy, wild-eyed, old man, but he was just continuing to channel Jackson considering Jackson did have an affinity for the duel himself!

Considering Zell is a student of history and a former History professor, it would not surprise me if Jackson was not only on his mind when he wrote the speech, but also when he delivered it, and it seems in follow-on interviews. So Is Zell saying, the Bush administration heir apparent to the JACKSONIAN PERSUASION?
