    So Gina believes there's "room for improvement" and is going to move politically to the right. Outstanding !

    Hmmmm...possibly you are making assumptions?

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    You sure you're not giving Noriega and Ortega and Castro et.al. too much credit? Hell, if you want it all to be big-league, you shoulda taken Stalin on.

    The Republicans in the Senate could block legislation just as they are doing today. You really need to learn how our government works, if you think the party in control of the Senate has absolute control.

    But you continue to dodge your earlier statement that we CHOSE to overthrow Hitler when the fact is he declared war on us!

    Yes... in West-Germany, people more or less ignored German guilt in the 50s and 60s, but the new post-war generation insisted very much on remembering the guilt of their fathers in the 70s to 90s ... maybe it has normalized a little during the past decade, I don't know. At least we're no longer reluctant flying the flag when there is a soccer match.
