Barbara Boxer's address: Ten minutes of confusion. The critism was focused on attacking republican's for partisanship and time waisting. If I'd listened carelessly to the words of the message, I would have walked away beleiving that democrats primary concerns are helping America and desolving partisanship. However, the speech also put a sour taste in my mouth. After some consideration, I decided the address back-fired. In the end, it is an indication that the democrats are just as commited to this partisan war as their republicans enemies. Or else, indicates that there are very few people in our government skilled in the art if building bridges. If she and the democratic party truly want to desolve partisanship, as they claim, I suggest that going on the offensive is not the best means by which to acheive that goal. I believe that Sen. Barbara Boxers true goal is very different to what was stated in her address.

in her speech that exemplified or demonstrated how the Dumocrats are attempting to "dissolve partisanship" behavior in today's political climate? I guess her comments during the California gubernatorial fiasco were to be considered non-partisan?

dung hill of history. First it was payback for Nixon, now it's payback for Clinton. Next it will be payback for Bush.

And I've been told that my spelling is rather colonial. I'm reading "In the Devil's Snare," at present, and it is true...however, I don't think its quite as extreme.

There's no way anyone is going to dissolve partisanship with the election coming up. Why give Bush any successes that he can campaign on? Some of these people are up for election as well, so better to stand firm along party lines. The rare elected official who does what's best for the country is even rarer today, so no one should be too surprised at their behavior. It's the loser's game. It's not about doing anything, it's about making sure the other guys don't do anything.
Boxer duplicitous? No! I'm shocked. (nm)53T
