As if we need to hear the lesson, but I'll just mention it in passing: This country is uncomfortable with pre-emptive military, clandestine, and covert action. I'm sure that some geniuses around here will be more than happy to list the various failures over the past few score of years that will support that contention.
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
