Aenimal, though your response was off topic, I will respond.  The impeachment of President Clinton were less about sexual misconduct, and more to do with precedence.  He was tried on obstruction of justice and perjury.  Had he not been tried, other Presidents down the line could invoke those proceedings as non-conforming to the 'treason or misdemeanor' clause in our Constitution related to Presidential impeachments.  Granted, Starr was a major embarrassment and grossly overpaid, but he was not the premise behind the impeachment proceedings, nor was it revenge for Nixon.  Presidential obstruction of justice and perjury.

Back on topic, I was frankly disgusted by the Democratic radio ad in Detroit, not insinuation, but blatantly stating that your vote only counts if you're white.  Despite the normal amount of mudslinging, which though despised is still part of our political heritage, heading back to Adams vs Jefferson, what the DNC pulled was way over the line.  They should, if for nothing else than for decency, publically apologize and fire those people responsible for that radio ad.

This is one area where we all agree I hope, that mudslinging and ethnic, religious, sexual slurs of ANY kind must stop. I've noticed many many ads foating around that are NOT suppposedly sponsored by either party's OFFICIAL HQ's or the candidates.
It's no wonder there are so many foreigners who say Americans are vulgar. During my own personal experiences overseas, in several different countries, I found FAR too many who look at us as if we all crawled out of some sewage hole.

Back to topic...hopefully we will all be enlightened further tonight, from the VP debate. But I'm not holding my breath, and am watching just because if I don't? Well, since the VP is always in line for the P job, guess I want to hear what they say as well as read how they vote on key issues.
