    Hillary's supporters are flocking to McCain, because they trust and respect McCain.

    What were they thinking when Madame Tussaud's waxworks put Hitler across from Churchill? Why did they include Hitler at all? If they are going to have statues of the bad boys and girls of history they ought to have a separate area for it – kind of like a hall of infamy with an emphasis on how terrible these people were.

    The hearing on the VA drugs should be interesting – I hope it forces a change in policy and the prescription of a drug that will help those with PTSD and not give them chemical impetus to commit suicide.
