I've always respected George Will's analysis of the political landscape,
though I rarely agree with him. Here he says what I, and others, have
been saying for a long time in this group. The GOP has been sucking on
the wrong teat for too long a time and has lost it's true identity. (I
actually was an early supporter of Barry Goldwater back in 64. But, back
then, I was a callow youth and had not yet had a proper education,
afterwhich I became a Progressive Liberal.) In any case, the republican

to you Chris, ya gotta change your ways. You are too ideologically
entrenched. You have no flexibility. You can't see that there is
another side of the coin.
Example: Take a coin and hold it out and look at it flat so you only see
the edge. Often, that is the way you look at things. You think that's
all there is. You turn the coin one way and you see a larger object.

different picture. And the closer you look at each side the more
differences you see. Look microscopically and there are lots of pits
and scratches. The older the coin, the more wear and more differences
from side to side. And every coin is different. And so with so many
issues in life and very much the way of the Middle East.

their country rather than their bank accounts and egos.
The Rush's of the world about to see their "It is Clinton's fault"
gravy train run out. This is because we have had 8 years of Dubya.
If you say, in 2009, it is still Bill Clinton's fault, you will end up
saying how pathetically useless Dubya was, since he had a Republican
congress to rubber stamp everything he had. I think they secretly
want Hillary elected, so "It is Clinton's fault" manta can be used
