Very valid assessment. It is hard in this "chat room" age to get really good political discourse without descending into some bi partisan bickering. It's as if everyone tow's the party line. In fact, I am always amazed at the hypocrisy of people who follow either the left or right so firmly that they have no reason. Look at the people bashing Bush for going at it alone in Iraq. I bet not one of those people said a thing when Clinton went to Kosovo.
