More reasons why we need to join together to reunite our country:

  • Keep The Candidates' Focus On The Issues, Rather Than Attacking Each other: Former Sens. Gary Hart (D-CO) and Nancy Kassebaum Baker (R-KS) joined together to launch the bipartisan effort Impact '08 in Iowa -- "a challenge to all of the presidential candidates to elevate and strengthen America's investments in non-military tools of global engagement to build a better, safer America and world."
  • And They Wonder Why They're So Unpopular: "It's only fitting that President Bush and the U.S. Congress hit new lows in approval ratings on the same week their work on the State Children's Health Insurance Program ended in a stalemate. The 'debate' on the bill the past week offered a microcosm of everything that is wrong with Washington, including disinformation, personal vitriol and partisan posturing," San Francisco Chronicle writes.
  • The Buying And Selling Of The Presidency? New York Times adds up the latest presidential fundraising numbers. Since the beginning of the year, Democratic presidential candidates have spent $133 million, while taking in $244 million. Republicans have spent just about the same -- $132.4 million -- but raised less, $175 million.
  • Quotable: "Every decision has to based on what is the best for the people, how can I serve the people, rather than how can I serve my party" -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA).
