    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    In my case it's not so much that as ADD. Sorry I was so easily led off topic.

    I think that would sufficiently apply to pretty much 95% of the male population, lib or con...and a fair number of the female persuasion as well...

    It won't.

    Does anyone seriously think it will?

    i dunno, you're the mayor you tell us. I can assure you that if you put graffiti drawings of pizza all around your city that people will go buy more pizza.

    A better way to save taxpayer dollars is for the government to stop spending them on things the Constituiton does not allow. Among those things are "food plates" and health care.

    no, it would just derail more threads.

    Probably no more an impact than Nancy Reagans "Just say no" initiative. I think most first ladies try to have something they champion. And as far as this goes...its not a bad thing.

    Here is my ONLY concern about this...they will use this as a new anti-poverty intitaive and will now ensure all school meals are treated this way as well as before and after school meals and weekend and summer school meals as well.
