i for one won't be holing my breath, however ;)

When she was asked about those claims by Dana Bash, she ran instead of defending them or even discussing them further. I wish there was some way we could make politicians more responsible for the crap they spit out sometimes.

It is because of their very wrong but basic deep down beliefs these types have that the US public are in such a mess today and they don't even have a clue they are the problem!
