>You keep leaving this out. You *SEEM* to be ignoring this fact. Why?

I'm not ignoring any facts.

I'm simply ignoring you.

Slight difference.

Please show me where I said this. Which should be difficult, since I never
did.

Clinton screwed an intern. This was a serious moral lapse that shamed the
office. But it really has no effect on the way the country is run; Whitewater,
after eight years of searching and millions of dollars, turned out to be
nothing but hot air.

Bush is screwing the *country*.and that's a very different thing.

Never saw the message to reply to it.

I contributed to the McCain campaign, in a fairly large amount. I would've
been happy with him or Gore in the white house. Both are men of strong
convictions and intellect who have dedicated their lives to public service.

Bush ran two businesses into the ground and was only rescued by friends of the
family and others who bailed him out in order to get close to the Bush family,
didn't even bother to show up for most of his national guard service, and has
the least amount of prior government work of any candidate in history, and that
is painfully evident with every passing day.

If the race were McCain against Gore, I honestly don't know who I would've
voted for. If I were prescient, and could see 9/11 coming, I probably would've
voted for McCain.

Meanwhile, please do not put words or intentions in my mouth to which I do not
subscribe; I get in enough trouble with what I *do* say, I don't need help in
that area by adding things I didn't say.

>>> The vice-president is always a suspect in an assassination. The

>>Not by standing law, it wasn't.

Here's the pertinent details from one of the many sites on the subject, just so
its clear who was on the commission and how it was formed:

"By his order of November 29 establishing the Commission, President Johnson
sought to avoid parallel investigations and to concentrate fact-finding in a
body having the broadest national mandate. As Chairman of the Commission,
President Johnson selected Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the United States,
former Governor and attorney general of the State of California. From the U.S.
Senate, he chose Richard B. Russell, Democratic Senator from Georgia and
chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, former Governor of, and county
attorney in, the State of Georgia, and John Sherman Cooper, Republican Senator
from Kentucky, former county and circuit judge, State of Kentucky, and U.S.
Ambassador to India. Two members of the Commission were drawn from the U.S.
House of Representatives: Hale Boggs, Democratic U.S. Representative from
Louisiana and majority whip, and Gerald R. Ford, Republican, U.S.
Representative from Michigan and chairman of the House Republican Conference.
From private life, President Johnson selected two lawyers by profession, both
of whom have served in the administrations of Democratic and Republican
Presidents: Allen W. Dulles, former Director of Central Intelligence, and John
J. McCloy, former President of the International Bank for Reconstruction and
Development, former U.S. High Commissioner for Germany, and during World War
II, the Assistant Secretary of War."
