    (indeed the instant action):  A cause on foot lives so in hope -- as, in an early spring, we see the appearing buds.  (Which, to prove fruit, hope gives not so much warrant as despair that frosts will bite them!)

    I almost used "Hope gives not so much warrant as despair/ That frosts will bite them." -- language that I really love -- but it didn't seem quite a propos, as we're not seeing many "appearing buds" in Iraq!

    My apologies to students who took my U.S. Government class in the 90s: evidently the Constitution doesn't limit Presidential power after all. Who knew?
