    Seriously, does anyone vet their nominees these days? McCain/Palin, Richardson, Killerfer, Daschelle... ENOUGH already.

    She realized that she was not as indispensible as was Geithner, or maybe Tom Dashle, whose always shown himself to be a completly brazen spinner. Tom knows how to manipulate, but Nancy probably knew she couldn't pull that off being a basically honest person, unlike Tom and Tim. She probably could've hung in there; the Republicans would've rolled over. She may have an enemy among the D's; someone she enforced on, and could get even.

    I wonder if you can refuse to pay taxes now, pay them when it fits you with the argument that all americans ought to be treated equally (constitution). And when the IRS brings you to court you can say they should pay their taxes first. And if it fails you have your own jumpstart into politics: Joe the taxpayer part I

    What do you mean? Are you unpatriotic if you don't pay your taxes?
    That is kind of a stretch.

    I'm hoping Tom Daschle goes down in flames. That guy is a hack. He was a terrible senate leader, and a total milquetoast.

    Obama should nominate howard dean for that post. Yeeaaaahhh! Dean knows something about healthcare and medicine.

    I'm just going by what Joe Biden said:

    Joe Biden calls it 'patriotic' for the wealthy to pay more taxes // Current

    These people are wealthy. They don't even pay their regular tax bill, let alone extra taxes because they are well-off.

    He didn't even invite Howard Dean to any of the doings. Or didn't you notice? He snubbed the crap outta Howard Dean.
