    Discontentment is on both sides this time.

    Maybe Conservatives will just have to trust Bush on this??

    I won't just 'trust' Bush on this. I think though, that this is an interesting take. By the way, herein is the reason that I wouldn't vote for McCain in any capacity at the federal level:

    He's right about many things and this is clearly one of them. I cannot for the life of me figure out why at times this president and many times the Repub Senate act like they aren't in power. I get so angry and frustrated over that I can't really watch the news or feel good about any future prospects for the party. The Dems act like Pit Bulls, and the Republicans act like Poodles. Im going to take a wait see stance on Harriet but Im very disappointed in Frist's leadership. They had a golden opportunity here and they blew it just like last time when the Republicans took power.
