    I want to hear Jay Carney push for an acceptable leader to replace Gadalfi; someone that Washington can influence for the best interest of the American people. (Oh, and the Libyans too, of course)

    Libyans don't really care who their next leader is, so long as it is not Gadalfi and not a tyrant. So now is the time for Washington to move quick, and place someone to our liking. An American/Libyan would be nice.

    I own this thread, baby. Obama is smarter than Bush, Palin is an air head, a peanut & butter s/w is ruined when you put too much jelly, FOX sux, and Wal-Mart will never die.
