80. I know a few
republicans who find the Cheney/Bush administration is farther from their values than was Clinton/Gore. And I have one relative who has changed from republican. But "power" doesn't only come from the numbers of people who vote one way or the other .... or Gore would have taken the office he was elected to in 2000.

The word "power" comes from the Latin root "posse," which simply means "posesses the ability." And a tiny minority in America posesses the ability to control the majority. That can change, and I surely hope it does. But at this point in time, the administration has more power than it did a year ago.
