    How will the Spitzer scandal affect the presidential race?

    I was remarking on how quickly impeachment was mentioned yesterday. I am NOT saying impeachment wouldn't be a good thing if her didn't resign. Just that it seems other illegal acts including taking bribes and "donations" from lobbyists don't bring the subject of impeachment into the news. Most do resign after they are convicted.

    How will the Spitzer scandal affect the presidential race?

    There is a difference in an affair and illegal prostitution. If it were my spouse I'm sure I'd thinmk differently. And why impeachment talk so quickly for a sex crime? W@hat about bribery, torture, illegal and unconstitutional activities? Shouldn't the be investigated too?

    Fill the purse with red bricks Mrs. Spitzer

    Eliot Spitzer was going after Predatory Lenders. He should have known that HE would be scrutinized. That was just plain dumb (as well as wrong) to be breaking the law while going after law breakers. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/13/AR2008021302783_pf.html

    Clinton In It, To Win It (Brokered Convention, here we come!)

    My father, who was in the Air Force Orchestra and band toild me that the proper protocol is to stand and sing the National Anthem and to put your hand over your heart and face the flag when saluting the flag. I love my country but did as my father, also a schoolteacher, told me. That is how we did it all my years in school. So call me unpatriotic if you want. All my life I blink as tears of pride in the values of my beloved country when the National Anthem is played. But I only began putting my hand over my heart in 2007 when someone posted here.

    "Who Needs a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy?"

    Old people may think that way but most Americans have moved beyond that. Mc Cain owes lobbyists while decrying their influence on politicians. I like him but cannot vote for war, worse economy, and a grumpy old man.
  11. I don't like the idea of going to a store where there is a line of sick people including sick kids. I think that can spead illness especially influenza and diarrhea (through fomites).
