    Neither did Bush, nor Cheney, nor Rove, but I bet that matters not to you and your ilk.

    Cronyism and nepotism don't ring a bell?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Did you actually look up what this "boy" has done with his life? He has founded law firms, been put by various presidents (Republican and Democrat) into leadership positions, sat as president of various NGOs, been a volunteer for religious organizations, graduated from Yale etc. Meanwhile, other people are just happy to simply post on internet forums and call this pretty accomplished young man "a boy".
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Really and since when did cronyism/nepotism become a dirty word for conservatives?

    Was it before baby Bush got elected or after?
