Will Bush Or Kerry Fly To Iraq Before November?

I read an article a few months back about Sen. John Kerry possibly paying a visit to US troops in Iraq before the election in November.

Pres. Bush is currently in Turkey & a few hours flight away from Baghdad. And either today or Wednesday will see the sybmolic handover of power to Iraq.

My question is: do you think either will fly to Iraq before the November election, or would the flight be too dangerous? Obviously, if they were going to do it, there would be no publicity until after they've arrived (and probably left).

Given the security situation at the moment, I doubt either of them would be likely to fly into Baghdad in the near term. On the other hand, it wasn't like the security situation in Baghdad was very good in November when Bush first visited.
