Waiting for War -- In White House
This one's for Bob who says "no way". Of course he's right. I was snowed for awhile thinking we had a glimpse of sanity in all this mess, but still, if it could only happen...
The key now is Powell. He could unhinge the Bush administration in a New York minute. He’s never been fully trusted by the Bush innermost circle.
