13. Interesting reply.
I have republican relatives & neighbors, but hadn't thought about friends. I guess I like a few of them. Now, I agree fully that these two were part of administrations I felt were criminal. Yet I am not sure that either of these guys is "criminal." It's possible -- at least in theory -- to have been in such an administration, and even to have participated in some level of wrong-doing, and to have grown beyond that stage. For example, I find "Worse than Watergate" to be on of the most insightful and informative of the new wave of "anti-bush" books. Yet Dean was part of the Nixon administration. We need to appreciate that people can grow and change. While George & Pat aren't likely to make a huge transformation, they know bush & cheney are enemies of democracy. I do not suggest we become their followers; but I find their distain for bush encouraging.
