How about if he were white but also the son of a former president? Being the son of a former President is certainly a tremendous boost for a politician. Just look what it did form Jimmy Carter's son in Nevada. He got quite a lot of financial support. No votes to speak of but he did have tv commercial.

Mrs. Edwards seems like a nice lady and I’m sorry that she has cancer. Beyond that I don’t understand the theme or narrative that Edwards is offering. Bush and Cheney ran on the theme that “Help is on the way”, for the military, for education, for overburdened taxpayers. John Kerry ran on the theme of “I could possibly win”. What is the theme or vision of an Edwards Presidency? Would people vote for him just because he doesn't like Ann Coulter or Fox News?

Shepard Smith Me too. He got to me during the Katrina coverage. He is one who droned on and on about murders and rapes inside the Superdome, and he has never corrected that coverage to my satisfaction.
is the quoted sentence written in English? The words are English, the syntax is Klingon, and the logic is Troll
I think the Iranian people need to get 'the letter' from President Bush submitting our complaints. First the terrorism. Then the nuclear weapons. And now killing our soldiers directly. A few days later, Iranian resistance should set fire to the refinery.

In 1969 I was in boot camp with a guy who was a Mexican citizen. He explained that military service was part of his plan to become a U.S. citizen. Joining the Marine Corps, during the Vietnam War, seemed to him to be a small price to pay to improve his chances!

Oh sure it's easy to make fun of Edwards, and people may laugh but ... Well at least he made a legitimate he made an attempt to learn about poverty. In fact his concern for poverty and the average family's carbon footprint are well known.

So Libby put on a ‘deficient memory’ defense, but he wasn’t allowed to introduce any actual evidence or expert testimony to demonstrate that his memory could have been defective. Indeed even Libby’s repeated declarations, during his GJ testimony, that he didn’t remember the details in question were ignored. That testimony was ignored by the prosecutor (of course) but also by the judge and even the jury instructions. The Libby statements quoted in the jury instructions omitted any of Libby’s repeated caveats regarding his memory and therefore were not representative of Libby’s testimony (just ask Cecil). The jury may have inferred that they were being instructed to either ignore completely or give little import to Libby’s caveats.

How would Lewis Carroll handle it? At the end of the Clinton impeachment process, all the Dems assembled across the street and had a victory party. In this case, if Libby is permitted to stay out of jail pending appeal, Lewis Carroll would have the President grant a pardon and give a speech that implied Libby had "proven his innocence."

Fairness Doctrine Liberals have been trying to remove dissenting opinion from academia, newspapers and TV News, and now from radio. They call that fairness, diversity, and progressivism.

Before tonight I never realized how evil Cheney was. Apparently he has been working overtime behind the scenes to screw stuff up. If I believed that, I'd be appalled too!

and then ensures the president hears none of the objections about the policy from other senior staff Wow! I didn't realize Cheney was doing that. My goodness.

Tell me, AppMod, weren't you just a little bit troubled by the Vice President's role in that administration? I think we should call you DoubleO T

That must be the new math. Well revenue took a drastic drop in 2001, which was due to...many adverse factors. Revenue continued to fall in 2002 and 2003. Revenue turned sharply upward in 2004 and has continued its upward trend. The whole time from 2001 to the present spending has increased every year.

3. On the larger point, aren't you just a little bit troubled by the VP's role in this administration? No!! Dick Cheney got over 62 million votes in the 2004 election. I'm much more troubled that a political appointee, even a member of the Cabinet, would be rude to the Vice President. Further, I'm concerned that you don't think the VP should have a role in government. Or perhaps you just don't think that the President should decide what that role should be.

Clarice: It seems that the jury and Walton would agree with Beldar? I have to go to work, but I'm concerned that my perception of the facts could differ so much with their's

While I was in the shower this morning, I was ‘struck’ or ‘surprised’ by something Beldar had written over the weekend. I was ‘struck’ not because “I was hearing it for the first time,” but because I have heard it before from others and because Beldar thought it was so important. In fact he seemed to think it was damning (possibly the most damning) evidence of Libby’s guilt. I don’t remember exactly what Beldar wrote. It was two days ago I think. The gist of it was that Libby didn’t take the opportunity when speaking to the gj to qualify, or equivocate, or express some uncertainty with regard to the answers he had given the FBI and the testimony he was giving the gj. Beldar seemed to be implying that if Libby had equivocated or qualified his testimony he would not have been indicted and convicted.

Pincus did talk to Fitzgerald The way Fitz kept asking Libby whether he did our could have told Pincus made me think Fitz hadn't asked Pincus who told him. Did Fitz think Pincus was lying to protect Libby?

My understanding is that Libby's claim that reporters had knowledge of Plame's identity before the Novak story was published was the material fact necessary for the crimes of perjury and obstruction. How could Libby's surprise or lack of surprise be material to anything?
