BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Well, now, were we led down the road to hell intentionally -- was bringing “democracy” to Iraq just a ploy to conquer Iraq and make it the center of operations for world domination? Did George Bush, Dick Cheney, and the neo-cons ever really want a democratic government in Iraq, or is all the death and destruction, chaos and confusion, a calculated rationale to expand the war and justify an everlasting occupation to include the entire Middle East?

As much as I personally believe in the goals of One Vote '08, I cannot and will not endorse former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist as its spokesperson.
