I never did trust that guy.

Hell, he was Mr. Elizabeth Taylor for a while; what the heck did you expect, Rush Limbaugh?

One thing I like about Warner (my senator for many years) is his ability to assess a situation and come up with what he believes is the correct situation. His considerable experience in positions of military leadership have given him insights that the rest of us outsiders can only guess (or opine) at.

While he tends to be reliably Republican on most issues, he does possess an independent streak (i.e., backing Coleman instead of North in VA Senatorial Primary, etc).

I don't agree with him on some issues (energy, for example), but admire his ability to arrive at his own conclusions and (some of the time) stand up for what he believes is right, instead of accepting commands from a powerful political hack. Indeed, that independent thinking is one of the most admirable traits I look for in a politician, a drought of which we now suffer.

Once again Will establishes his bonafides as a jibbering idiot.

He's trying desparetly to wrest the mantle from you, this sites true gibbering and I might add, drooling, Xanthippe.

Begone vile harpytard!

agrees with will=independent thinker
disagrees with will=political hack

If 70% of the American people have grown tired of fighting and Warner can read which way the wind blows, does that make him an independent thinker?

49% of the American people have grown some common sense and re-evaluated this morass that they also have come to understand was predicated on lies and deceit. They recognize that it has NOTHIng to do with thieir safety nor the cause of fighting terrorism. To call this weary is an awful self deception on your part Anni. They ahve seen 3500 of their childred die with no end in sight and no progrees made on the supposed goal of liberation and creation of a free society. Meglomania is on the tip of their tongues.

Did I say 49% ? Rather it should agree with hostesssss 70%

These fucking socks stink. Any wonder that they always show up in a pair? Warner is typical of the political class, self-interest above all. I KNOW how he got promoted to Colonel.

I believe that while there is some basis of truth in this assessment, it is too polar and falls into the category of false dichotomy.

While I do appreciate positions of those who exhibit more independent thinking, there are some whom I agree with on specific points that are not independent thinkers.

On the second suggested 'axiom', I was referring to majority/minority leaders and whips who have as their imperative the political objectives of their party (and their contributors). In this category I would put Delay out in front (who drove his charges like cattle), with Lott and Reid as lesser hacks. Frist and Daschle were a bit more above the fray, at least at first. Mitchell and Dole at least put a gentlemanly face on their role. McConnell has not been afraid to be the spokeman for politically charged statements, but I'll reserve final judgement on him until I see more.

I would recommend you change them more often.
