I was lucky to catch a speech on the radio tonight that reaffirmed my faith in this great country. Re-broadcast from a few days ago, the President was articulate, caring, regretful and genuinely concerned with the way in which the rest of the world views the U.S.A. There was a clear and honest message of the failures we have endured over the past three-and-a-half years. He called for the resignation of the administration's heavy hitters: Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz - even Rice. Finally some accountability! And, while really difficult to hear, it was a step in the right direction to have what happened in the Iraqi prisons defined accurately: as war crimes. I was extremely impressed with the way in which the President expressed true sorrow - no sly grins, no glossed-over answers, no talk of America as if America is the capital of the world.

I am so happy to have voted with the majority of Americans for our President, Al Gore. He may not be sitting in the oval office, but if he was I bet we'd be living in a much safer, saner, happier country.
