National News Round-Up

Busy Sunday afternoon, but here are the national stories of interest.

It appears Democrats and Texas bloggers are right again. Most oppose Bill Frist's call to ship out 11 million workers and families. It appears the Kennedy/McCain plan resonates with voters.

The White House and Republican Party are letting "Bush be Bush". Not nearly as exciting as when the West Wing was letting "Bartlet be Bartlet". But Republican leadership is about to lose another battle in Congress, Frist and a dozen others are clearly running for President already (forcing Bush into lame duck status), and now the White House is in the midst of further shake-ups.

Secretary of State Condi Rice has said there were thousands of mistakes in Iraq, but nation building is still a good idea for some reason. In other news the White House has announced that it will continue to support our troops by forcing more budget cuts in Veteran's Hospitals, cutting pensions, and making it illegal to purchase body armor (even though the US is not providing it).

In older news, a DeLay aide has plead guilty and the Democrats offer a vision.

Thanks for the link. I think this is an insanely interesting topic because it covers so much-- workers rights, families, social security, border security, etc.
