All D's, which in my book, makes you so close to failure you might as well give up.

Bill Clinton for Supreme Court Justice? I'd rather have him back in the Oral - OOOOOps - I meant Oval Office.

Hell yeah, it'd be great to have him back in office. And then we could give Ken Starr another $50 million worth of taxpayers money to find out who his girlfriend is.

You can't even give Cheney credit for having no further political aspirations...Edwards would have stabbed Kerry in the back (literally) to take the highest office...if that thing on his lip didn't weight him down so much. If you need some back-story, it is this:
Cheney was in charge of finding Bush a VP -he didn't want to be one. Bush asked Colin Powell, but he asked to be the SOS. Second choice was McCain but Laura vetoed it because she didn't get a good vibe and SHE suggested Dick Cheney. Karl Rove was dead set against it.... So the woman with the 80% approval rating chose the veep.

You left out the part about after he became Veep, he held secret meetings with (God knows who, and if he does he aint sayin') calling those meetings an "energy task force." No record of who attended these meetings or even what was discussed has ever been released.
Also he told Patrick Leahy quote, "Go fuck yourself!" on the floor of the US Senate. So the fact that he's not running in '08 is not surprising and no reason to be commended. Besides, does anyone really want him to run, even without our the creepy demeanor and the heart health baggage? Well, besides you, Ala?

Jensen- Well, I suppose it depends on what the meaning of "is" is. (I couldn't help myself, and apparently neither could Clinton!lol)

I think the following answers are correct:

1. What federal agency will the right wing of the Republican Party try to get rid of to pay for more massive tax cuts for the wealthy? Obviously, the answer is D, but as one who works in the public schools, I have to lean toward B just a little.

2. Which distinguished law school graduate is LEAST likely to be appointed to the Supreme Court in the next four years? Definitely Bill Clinton. As for who is MOST likely, I think that's Ashcroft once he gets his health back.

3. What country is the US most likely to invade in the next four years? You left out:

E. All of the above

but I would have to lean toward France, because for invading other countries it is the least rational choice of the four.

4. Who pushed hardest to replace the "Powell doctrine" of overwhelming force when engaging another country militarily? While I think the answer must be "God" or "Jerry Boykins", I guess I would have to go with "all of the above" if those are the only four choices.

5. Who will leave the Bush administration first? Wishful thinking tells me to answer "all of them" but as that isn't likely, I'll say Cheney because I dislike him the most from that group.

6. Why has Dick Cheney decided not to run for President in 2008? The answer to this question has to be C. I think Rush Limbaugh and his wife introduced or sponsored a "No Boundaries" line of clothing a few years back, so why shouldn't Cheney do something similar?

Thanks for giving us some good choices. This was fun!
