And another thing about that debate....

Tim Russert asked Hillary Clinton whether she could pledge that Iran would not acquire nuclear weapons during her presidency. Hillary responded that she'd do everything she could to prevent it, and Russert responded by saying "But you won't pledge?" and then hounded her about it again when she reiterated her answer. Um, Tim, Hillary's not running for president of Iran. She can't actually guarantee Iran won't get nukes because only Iran controls that. Just because other candidates, like Richardson in that debate, say that they'll guarantee that Iran won't get nukes doesn't mean they actually can do it. So don't be so silly, Tim.

Did the legislation read from right to left?

So I'm watching the Democratic debate Tuesday night and John Edwards says that the Iran resolution they were talking about was "written in the langague of the neo-cons." What language was that John, Hebrew?
