    How can I forgive when there are 650,000 innocent Iraqis dead?   We hear about US losses, but not too much about Iraqi victims of our aggression.  Why are our lives more valuable than Iraqi lives?

    Here are a few other things I will never be able to forgive:

    1)People who insist they know what's best for each and every woman in this country.

    1. People who called me and others like me "traitors" (and various other insulting names but traitor is the worst) because I believe that the richest nation in the world should be able to provide every citizen with access to healthcare, a living wage and a roof over their heads.
    1. Letting New Orleans drown.

    There is a LOT I can forgive, but the four above are not going to happen, as far as I can tell.  (And it's not like I haven't worked on forgiveness...it's just not happening in those areas.)

      Joe Biden.  I remember him on TV saying the antiwar people shouldn't look to him.  

      Biden, Dodd, Edwards, Clinton --- there was nothing but supercilious contempt from them for people opposed to the war back in 2002 - 2003.  Its going to be easy to find clips of their contempt if any of them is the Democratic nominee.
