“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”
― Milton Friedman

“Human beings are born with different capacities. If they are free, they are not equal. And if they are equal, they are not free.”

Hillary takes a stand

Attacks in Baghdad down by 80%

It's over. We don't need a surge. Pull American troops from Iraq.

... the wife of former President Bill Clinton... has been criticized by some Democrats for supporting authorization of the war in 2002 and for not renouncing her vote as she seeks the U.S. presidency in next year's election.

"Now it's time to say the redeployment should start in 90 days or the Congress will revoke authorization for this war," the New York senator [Hillary Rodham, Clinton] said in a video on her campaign Web site, repeating a point included in a bill she introduced on Friday.

John Edwards and Barack Obama beat her to it.
