By his own Wreckoning

Count the number of correct and/or verifiable assertions in this paragraph, excerpted from Newsweek's "Bush in the Bubble" article.
[T]he record so far suggests that Bush is not likely to change in any fundamental way in the three years that remain in his term. He has won two presidential elections and one war (Afghanistan) and is, at least by his own reckoning, winning two more (Iraq and the Global War on Terror, or GWOT). His character was forged by hard-won struggles with drink and more shadowy demons, and he has been redeemed by faith.
My personal count: 1 — Sadly, yes, there are 3 more years remaining in Bush's second term.
