Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

NYTimes Magazine Conversation with Chuck Hagel
In case you missed it over the weekend, read this (very short) interview with Chuck Hagel, who I think has a very good shot at the Republican nomination in 2008. I'm a Democrat, but I agree with Hagel about at least one thing:
In terms of the deficit, we have blown the top right off. We're a bunch of Democrats.
I've never heard anyone call President Bush a Democrat.
That's my point. We're less honest about it. We built the biggest government history has ever seen under a Republican government. The Democrats are better because they are honest about it. They don't pretend. I admire that. They'll say: ''We want more money. We need more money.''
