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.

Re: Alec MacGillis's puff piece on John Edwards, so, the subject of the interview says I will not talk about topic A, B or C. Translation: I'm looking for free publicity to try to convince the audience I'm someone other than I truly am. This is the Wash Post's idea of reporting? If I remember right, the Wash Post also refused to investigate Edwards during his presidential campaign when rumors were rampant that Edwards was lying to the electorate about his affair, all while putting his wife front and center in his campaign. Just in case the Wash Post and its reporters are still delusional about their worth in this democracy, let me be clear. The Wash Post is nothing more than a national laughing stock with an elevated sense of importance. And by the way, if you want to contact me to discuss my comment, please know that I'm not willing to discuss this topic and instead will only talk about things that make me look good.
