Sunday stuff

It wouldn't be a Sunday without a couple articles speculating about potential candidates for the next presidential election. Seems no one can wait until after the mid-term elections anymore.
Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, a fierce critic of the Bush administration, said Saturday that he's pulling for U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to win the White House. It is obvious why he is the former German Chancellor.

However nice it might be for Clinton to hear that a German (who can't vote here) supports her candidacy, this article has to be disconcerting.
HILLARY CLINTON would make an excellent president, according to Meg Hirschberg, whose husband runs a hugely successful organic yoghurt company in New Hampshire: “She’s amazing and brilliant and smart and lovely.” So that’s a vote for Clinton in 2008, then? Not at all. Hirschberg is thinking of backing Mark Warner, the former governor of Virginia, a likable, low-key, moderate Democrat
If the Meg Hirschberg types of the world realize Clinton can't win then she is toast before the game begins.

Washington Post examines how Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is courting Bush loyalists

George Will has an article on one senator working against the reckless spending of his collegues, Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK).
Coburn is the most dangerous creature that can come to the Senate, someone simply uninterested in being popular. When House Speaker Dennis Hastert defends earmarks -- spending dictated by individual legislators for specific projects -- by saying that a member of Congress knows best where a stoplight ought to be placed, Coburn, in an act of lese-majeste, responds: Members of Congress are the least qualified to make such judgments.

"If I don't get reelected? Great. The Republic will live on." Meanwhile, his mission is the soul of simplicity: "stopping bad things."
We need more senators with the mindset of Tom Coburn.

Lastly, Vice President Cheney accidentally shot someone while hunting yesterday. I wonder if this is the first time a VP has shot someone since this case.

We definitely need more colburns in government. Unfortunately too many folks who claim their earmarks will "save the children" are going to continue to kick and scream until they get to keep them.
