30. America united. Doesn't it feel good?
Edited on Thu Sep-08-05 10:38 PM by chookie
A bit that came out of the Nancy Pelosi/Kyra Phillips exchange (nice cat fight) today was Phillips opining that unlike Sept 11, which united America, Hurricane Katrina divided America along partisan lines.

I disagree, Nancy Pelosi disagreed, and I feel many here would support this view. We're hearing from all sorts of folks, with whom we may have had differences in the past, speak powerfully from the viewpoint we share regarding the pathetic response to the predictable tragedy in Louisiana.

I hope we can get something positive done with this accidental majority -- truly, we are all Americans.
