Dennis:

I understand the difference between "hope" and "believe", the quote I was
referring to used believe.

Bill:

The RNC Christmas tape was not sophomoric because of scenes of wild
gyrations a la NYSE traders, it was full of vulgarities and lewd skits.  I
wish somebody who had seen the spot would comment.

Ken:

Good losers is not an oxymoron.  A good loser accepts defeat with dignity
and grace and vows to fight again another day.  A good loser accepts the
responsibility for the defeat with out blaming others.  Examples of good
losers are Walter Mondale, Mamie Eisenhower, Michael Jordan and I
anticipate Bob Dole.  Poor losers look for somebody else to blame and
refuse to accept the responsibility.  Examples of poor losers are Roberto
Alomar, myself in 1984, and Newt Gingrigh (blaming Al Hunt's criticism on
psychological problems!!!!).

BTW if as you contend, good loser is an oxymoron, what does that make Pat
Buchanan?
