19. oh please.
hillary is certainly not my first choice, but there is a big difference between bush having someone like jimmy/jeff ask softball questions in order to divert more important/unwanted questions, and having someone ask a question (because no one else has asked anything similar) to allow a solution/viewpoint be put forward.

BIG difference.


much ado about absolutely nothing, but par for the course for the hillary bashers.
