I also wanted to add that those blogging here don't seem to be aware that we have a Democratic Congress, and they(the bloggers) are givingthe President way more authority and power than he accually has.
By the way, the same people giving John Edwards' wife such a hard
time, are coincidentally the ones that said Bill Clinton was just 'human'
when he got a bj in the oval office! Oh those two-faced Dems.
You mean the Republican soap opera launched its pilot show.
