Jeff Fleischer: Bush's slipup on Auschwitz

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Jeff Fleischer

While on a visit to Israel last week, President Bush toured the Holocaust memorial at Yad Vashem. During the tour, he was by all accounts respectful and appropriately moved, tearing up a couple times, placing a wreath on the ashes of Holocaust victims and speaking eloquently about what he witnessed.

Cindy Sheehan: The "I" Word

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

Once, when my children were young, one of them rushed into me and said: "Mama, so-and-so, said the 'K' word." I don't remember which one of my children was the tattler, or which one was the tattlee, but I remember the 'k" word. I could never figure out what the "k" word was, because neither of the children would say that very naughty word.

Hillary Clinton made an impressive comeback Tuesday in New Hampshire's Democratic presidential primary, after her defeat in Iowa to Barack Obama. It now appears likely that either she or Obama will be the Democratic nominee when votes are all counted by Feb. 5's Super Primary.

Both candidates are running a marathon of hope, with a vision of national unity and a promise of change. We're hoping, of course, they mean real change. Yet their proposals for change skirt major right-wing roadblocks that obstinately block our progress.

Maybe it fears a President Obama. Maybe it feels enough time has elapsed since Robert Hawkins gunned down 13 Christmas shoppers at an Omaha mall. But the National Rifle Association is back on the legislative track.

The NRA is reviving its campaign, derailed last year in Georgia by the Virginia Tech shootings, to prohibit businesses from forbidding employees from keeping licensed firearms in their cars while at work.
