    Hope you're right--about 15 years ago, I talked to once moderate Ben Gilman--my NY congressman.  I asked why he was following Newt's insane contract--his answer was--it was the only way he could keep his committee chair.  That is insane--but probably very common--give up ideals so that you can seem to have power.

    Apres Bush, le deluge.
