3.25.07 Bill Bradley on Sunday's Meet The Press
Bill Bradley is a person of integrity, which apparently voters were not up for in 2000, look what we got. We need a Bill Bradley and not "statesmen" like Newt Gingrich or John McCain to lead or otherwise advise decision makers on how to lift this country out of the mud. No more liars, please.
Rare persons of integrity sound like this:

BILL BRADLEY (D-NJ): Well, Tim, “The New American Story” says that we can solve our problems—whether it’s health care, education, there’s reforming democracy—if we put country ahead of party and we tell people the truth, and that a—if, if, if you have bold solutions, you can solve our problems.

I don't think so, Holocaust is a better word, or is it already taken? Abused have become abusers. So, when is enough, enough? How many more dead bodies for avarice and greed? How much more destruction before the planet abuses once and for all its abusers?
Bill Bradley is a man in sharp contrast to America's presiding political Kabuki theater. I hope we see more of him when we hit the remote, so we can view what real authenticity looks like. It might help.
