RE: Question About Tony Blair

Why do you Bush loyalists always try to say Clinton did the same thing for everything your boy does wrong? Because it's just about the only defense you have! If you can show me any articles where Bubba used even 400 signature statements, I will put a Bush/Cheney sticker on my car.

They did have enough class to hire Nolan after everyone else blackballed him. Maybe they know something about hiring Snow that we don't.
Or I can dream and think it is a conspiracy to get the team so bad and fail on a new arena, that they will move to Portland.
