        Allegedly (and this comes from a rather reliable source) that G.W. is
fulfilling a "deal" that his pop brokered in 1992. The essences of it was
"take a dive in this election and get your progeny to succeed Clinton in
2000." FWIW....

        Let's simply look to what Clinton was able to get from the so-called
"majority party"........folks, it's not a death sentence to a Democrat
President to get a legislature full of right-wingers. The DNC is poised to
cleverly spin to get whatever they want while we sit on our hands, afraid
to object.

        The year was 1849 and the Whigs had met their demise. An upstart party of
elephants quickly filled the void and before you could wind your watch,
they ran one young attorney, Abraham Lincoln, for the White House. Dennis,
I know where you're coming from, but 'taint necessarily so!
