It’s refreshing to hear them fess up to it, day after day. p>All power to the Palin! Write on! br> — Edmund Dantes br> Coshocton, Ohio /p> p> SHOT IN THE FOOT br> Re: R.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
