'ceptin' that I liked this picture...But if Lil'Bill doesn't like it, it'll be gone in a New York minute!
LittleBill and Mercury loved your pictures and my ode.As for your picture of Hillary and Barack, Vigilante, I once pictured a similar duo. But I have changed my mind after seeing pictures of melting icebergs and milling hordes of starving people. Got any of those to go with a picture of Al Gore?
I haven't finiished. How about adding a picture of burning virgin territory to those to go with Al Gore? Homes can be rebuilt. Virgin land probably cannot keep up with the destruction by man and nature.
Al Gore would be mo' betta! He wins my vote hands down. But I don't think he's gonna run Lil'Bill! I mean, he's already won once, hasn't he? And, dollars to doughnuts, historians are going to give him the last, knowing laugh. Americans had their chance to make him Prez, but they just weren't quite smart enough to deserve him. More's the pity.
But I still think these two make a smart looking couple. Not my first choice for November 08, by a long way; but not my last choice, either.
Just a quick question for those who are more sophisticated political wonks than I:When it's said - which it is with more and more frequency - that Senator Barak Obama has had an undistinguished career as a congressman and a senator, is that a coded statement that he doesn't have a record of sleeping with (a) congressional pages, (b) lobbyists, and (c) other men's wives?
I've been told by what would be a fundraising source that Al's not running )-:
Saw Obama last night on C-Span in New Hampsire (Sunday). The man is in touch with the pulse of the country and speaks from his guts as opposed to notes. He has great merit. But it will be very, very ugly as the Repugs realize the dangers he poses to their continued hegemony. It has already started.
E.J. Dionne says Barak Obama is exactly what Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party need right at this moment:A Clinton-Obama contest would require Clinton to shed some of her caution. It would create enormous popular interest in the Democratic Party. And if she were to beat Obama -- this assumes, as I expect, that Obama will look just as formidable a year from now as he does today -- Clinton would prove her mettle, which might finally put the doubts to rest.Dionne says Obama may prove to be more like Bill Clinton than Hillary: in 2008 he will be 47, only one year older than the 42nd president in 1992.I say he may even be more JFK, too. Listen to his words:"America is ready to turn the page. America is ready for a new set of challenges. This is our time. A new generation is prepared to lead." Dionne concludes:In other words: Goodbye to both the Clinton era and the Bush years.
Hillary wants to be president so badly that she refuses to meet with the leading candidate for the Presidency of France, Segolene Royal, because she is a Socialist!
Reading the source for this story, Soros, I conclude that Hillary Clinton is not the answer for what ails American foreign policy in the Middle East. Thanks for posting.
What is a man,
Be but to sleep and feed? A beast, no more.
