  - There is no reason, whatsoever  Pastiche423   Mar-09-07 09:51 PM   #32 
  - Would it be okay for him to call a pro-war constituent a conservative idiot?  karlrschneider   Mar-09-07 10:07 PM   #55

     - "far more knowledgable"???? She didn't appear to know that Obey is trying  karlrschneider   Mar-09-07 11:07 PM   #76 
     - Hard to get around the camera and her doing the TV circuit  KingofNewOrleans   Mar-09-07 11:11 PM   #80
