    Wow - this is getting out of control quickly. I did read your post closely, and still had trouble discerning how it addressed the original topic.

    For my part, I'll say: not a Bush fan, but pleasantly surprised at the lack of fuss he and his put up towards this new FDA application.

    Never mind, I see we're going with the guilt by association method of political analysis.

    An administration farther to the right than this one would 'goose-step'.
    Hey, nice to see you back in the fray! Where have you been?

    The "Clintons" response was in reply to "wjf00" who was responding to my comment that people on the far right probably had more to complain about than people on the far left.

    So I guess I actually started it - but I was merely making a comment about how Bush may have upset his base.

    I wasn't even aware that Hillary has announced that she's running in 2008. Does anyone have a link or is this merely speculation?

    Are you kidding? Hillary has been running for President since at least 1991.

    To quote Dick Morris when he was asked if he thought she'd actually run: "Is she actually breathing?"

    I think she might suffer from Howard Dean syndrome: her base might consider her not electable and move on to someone else.

    And I think she has made a political miscalculation. I know, heard to believe from a Clinton. But, the rule is that you run towards the party base until after the primaries and to the center AFTER primaries. She has tried to chart a more centered course to establish credentials early on - and may have alienated her base as a result. I think this is a result of some arrogance: I think she was operating on the ASSUMPTION that she already has the nomination locked up. I also think, as of late, she now knows better. Expect a left shift in Hillary from now until the primaries are over.

    If she gets the nomination, expect her to try to channel Pres. Reagan from then to election.

    So from all of that, I see no ''she's announced'', so it is speculation. Nothing wrong with that, but it doesn't make it so.

    It's not good political 'etiquette' to officially announce until after the off-term elections. And especially, until AFTER you win an office you hope to vacate for the WH. Remember, Hillary is skipping towards a different election THIS Nov. - re-election as Senator.

    Expect an 'official' announcement in Jan or Feb. But, unofficially, she 'announced' when she ran for Senate. The whole point of SENATOR Clinton is to establish a political resume not invested in her husband.

    And, there aren't very many offices that the Senate is considered a stepping stone towards. . .

    Right. So she hasn't announced yet.

    SHE HASN'T ANNOUNCED YET.

    Sheeshhhh.

    LOL.

    But, she IS running. There is no doubt that she considers herself a candidate and a front-runner, at that. And she WILL be the front-runner. Any Democrat running for President in '08 will have to get passed Hillary first.

    Holy smokes. What a spin on this story.
    It is always a SPIN or misrepresentation of facts when it does not support the Bush administration according to GOP supporters.

    Quote from ZASHAGALKA
    Pres. Bush practically endorsed the OTC sell of the morning after pill with one limitation: that it not be sold to minors WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION.
    No he does not, he is a liar! That is what he does! This is his new lie for the moment. I am sure he will find a way to really express his opinion!

    Quote from ZASHAGALKA

    The question was about Plan B being made OTC because of Bush's choice of FDA Commissioner. Pres. Bush's answer: I support Andy's decision.
    And here it is! He is putting it off on Andy. And I am sure if Andy gets flack for it, it will stay on Andy!

    Sheesh.
    No, Kidding!

    What does this mean and what is it's application to the issue?

    What in this issue does not 'support' the Bush administration? Your comment makes no sense; this drug was about to be made accessible without interference from Pres. Bush. Those are the facts, so what do you see that "does not support the Bush administration."??
