RE: Penny For Your Thoughts....
I feel bad for her and Colin Powell. Either one of them could have been the next President, and I think a black president would go a long way towards healing the historical tragedy that has been the United States when it comes to race. Both of them blew it by covering themselves in the blood and guts of Iraq. By 2008, anyone who has had anything to do with us getting into will be political toast.
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.
