http://www.NewsAndOpinion.com | Democratic hopefuls in Amherst, New Hampshire, Friday saw Revolutionary War battle re-enactments. It was colorful. A red coat meant you're a royalist, a blue coat meant you're a rebel, and a white coat meant you're assigned to make sure Howard Dean takes his medication.
Republicans vowed Wednesday to fight their own president's prescription drug plan. It's no surprise. The reason presidents don't do any Christmas shopping in November is because they never know who their friends will be four weeks from now.
The NEA asked teachers to send postcards to the White House and ask for more money for education. That isn't going to happen. Poor math scores give campaign donors the cover they will need to get through the next wave of accounting scandals.
Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows by celebrating the Fourth of July in England Friday. She must be blind to appearances. Every August Hillary celebrates the anniversary of her marriage to Bill Clinton with the Kennedys at Martha's Vineyard.

The Academy Awards issued tough new rules Wednesday to limit what studios can do to influence Oscar voters. The Academy said it's time to end the aggressive campaigning. Promising free drugs in exchange for votes is only allowed in Washington.
President Bush confronted Washington D.C. teachers Tuesday and demanded improved student achievement. It's time educators started living up to expectations. The average professor earns more money in one year than a New York Yankee makes all day.
The Kennedy Curse hits the bookstores today and details the cocaine problem of John-John's wife Carolyn Bessette. The book describes how an adulterous and drug-using and self-centered woman ruined the life of John Kennedy. That's a switch.
