I'm not sure if I've said it here or not, but I have been following the Presidential campaign with quite a bit of interest. In fact, I'm a bit of a talk radio junkie, truth be told. I listen to it most of the day on my headphones at work, and have a couple of favorite shows. I even call in or email the shows on a semi-regular basis, and the local hosts (and call screeners) know my voice by now. Anyway, I was listening today and was amazed and amused to hear that Barack Obama (whom I will not vote for) made a statement over the weekend that "foreign policy is the area where I am probably most confident that I know more and understand the world better than Senator Clinton or Senator McCain." Now, I don't have any more respect or intention to vote for Hillary than I do for Obama (and I'm not completely sure I'm even comfortable with a McCain presidency), but--really?! Obama, whose only real foreign experience includes living outside the country between the ages of 6 and 10, and having foreign relatives, thinks he knows more about foreign affairs than a veteran of a foreign war who spent 5.5 years in a POW camp, or even a former First Lady, who spent 8 years in the White House, hosting foreign diplomats and accompanying her (President!) husband on countless trips to other countries, specifically for the purpose of dealing with foreign policy matters. Oooookay...

Thank you for your info about George.
Sounds like a nice guy from a nice family. 5' 10" is OK with me:)

I certainly wouldn't kick him out for, well, much...

(we're talking Clooney here, if anyone's wondering...)
