Thank you (ya'll-ha) for responding. You know, I was born and raised in Texas. . but have not always been a Republican. I actually voted for Perot in '92! Didn't realize it would put Clinton in office. George W is nothing like his "Daddy", I think he is more like his mother. (I think Barbara is a very wise woman) This is another thing that irritates me. . . people comparing him to George Sr! While I am on a roll. . .I'm not a feminist in the slightest but I do love Condoleezza Rice and Karen Hughes!
