    CPT, agreed. I think more people need to find that common ground. W had great intentions but was surrounded by some evil people. Let's head to washington and teach them about compromise

    Condon – Ok, but after we get elected, one very important thing. We can't share a house with Chuck Schumer. While he's my senator and a great guy (met him a couple times, nice fellow), all his roomies complain he steals their cereal

    I am totally opposed to the cult of personality in world affairs. Alas that personality is always Satan using a different puppet. I suspect Satan has some low self esteem issues like Napoleon.
