RE: Person I would just like see go away this year
No, that'll be 2007, when the new Congress get's sworn in. After another year of this, when people find out the Iraqi elections are a shame and the bloodbath never ends, and the Dead Duck Dow and the Outsourced Economy all keep a keepin' on, people are going to make him go away. The number one thing that will hurt him is the loss of Tom Delay. He's the guy that keeps the corporate money pumping into the Congressional races. As long as he is under indictment or in prison, the money train doesn't run. Since the Repugs essentially progandize themselves into office by running endless commercials on non-issues, they are going to be dead if they have to - gulp - actually discuss the issues. One more year like last, and they themselves will be throwing rocks at the Whitehouse just to save their own asses. The voters want a change, anyway.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
