Unfortunately I believe that we are limited in what we can focus on. I think that if we proceed with the partisan sideshow of prosecuting Bush admin. officials, healthcare will get lost in the brouhaha.

Why still all these questions about Palin?
Could it be because Sarah Palin actually has some ethical issues?? She has questions about nermerous scandals and even an alledged affair. We need to know more about her before we embrace her.
