Two End of 2007 Observations
Saddam Hussein: Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. But that doesn't mean that it wasn't a show-execution held after a show-trial which was the direct result of unnecessary and unpopular US military action inh Iraq.
Gerald Ford: He did NOT heal the country by pardoning Nixon. Rather, he betrayed the will of the American people who wanted to see a criminal president brought to justice. He should not be praised for that. Rather, we should all be reminded that Ford, a man never elected to the Presidency, acted without regard for the wishes of the electorate.
