Hillary's camp is supposedly throwing out some negative items about Barack Obama, but I am not sure this is a wise thing to do. It raises issues of her and Bill's own past ethical problems. See "Hillary's Glass House" for a succinct summary of Hillary's questionable activites. I believe Stuart Taylor is a Democrat as far as I can tell.

This blogger captures a paradox in American presidential campaigns -- there is a general "dumbing" down on how issues are dealt with (and I blame the media for some of this) and also we have this celebrity focus (and Obama is not the only one to blame for this).

Posted on the Drudge Report under the title "Take This Nation Back for Christ." I think Huckabee handles himself very well in most debates I have seen, but I am wondering if he would be a strong candidate outside of the South or some of the Midwest states. Secularists might be more comfortable with Romney, a Mormon, than a fundamentalist.

I have not been impressed with US intelligence services for a number of years (probably decades). The 2007 national intelligence estimate has come out and the media is saying it corrects the misinformation in the 2005 estimate regarding Iran. It has been some time since I read the 2005 estimate and I have only had time to read the media reports on the 2007 estimates. Ambassador Bolton has come out with his criticism of the 2007 estimate. He obviously has a stake in this debate as do those critical of the 2005 report. I wonder, however, if either of the reports has got it right?
