8. I wondered why CNN was pushing Hillary... the Dem 08 candidate.

They recently featured a poll, which showed Hillary as the top 08 contender, with 40 percent of Dems saying they want her to run.

CNN has practically started her campaign for her. The story they did showed "Give em Hillary 08" bumper stickers and all kinds of rhetoric about her running.

Truly, it was like watching the recent presidential campaigns all over again. CNN presented her in such a favorable light.

It reminded me of how CNN touted Kerry (especially over Dean). We all know the Reps were salivating to run against Kerry. The Swift Boat sickos were waiting in the wings, as were the Reps with Kerry's voting record.

So, it looks like the Reps want to run against Hillary in 08--because CNN is sure propping up her candidacy.
