MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

I think it was in the Mailbag one day that I read where a woman said that Ford was not her favorite because of what he was running on (paraphrasing).

This is an interesting article because Tennessee does have some racial problems, but I really do believe that what this article has to say pertains, too, to losses past. Democrats need to take a closer look -- and look to the future of cleaning up this party, so that people can recognize the Democrats for who they are and what this party has always stood for, and not for those who want to be Republicans but just don't have the courage to do so.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Karl Rove is a smart guy. He got a much dumber man into the White House - twice - while securing several Republican Congresses. For years, his strategy of appealing only to the most zealous right-wingers while ignoring everyone else won elections. However, the results of the 2006 midterms have proven that this "divide and conquer" approach will only work for so long.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

I really regret hearing about Lieberman, the old sot, and Arnold, the body grabber . . . what are those people in California thinking and why did the Democrats lose? I don't want the DLC to take this as a win for them because it is not. I think there would have been more of a landslide had they not been trying to stay to the right of the Democratic Party.

Election Postmortem: What's Next?

Here's the way to look at the Election Day outcome: If the U.S. were a parliamentary democracy, Bush would be history. Our self-proclaimed "war president" has lost a vote of confidence, not by the members of his party, but by the people of the United States.

Sit Down for Change -- Stand Up for Peace, Day 2

Technically George was not up for re-election today, but realistically, he lost big time! This election was a referendum on his war of terror and his war lost. Time to change your course, George....

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Simply said, "truth to power" and "power to the people"! The people have spoken loud and clear!

America is a great country and the people have spoken.

America is a melting pot of diverse people, alternately united and uplifted by the positive spirit, or divided and brought down by lesser instincts of leadership and institutional elites.

Back to Crawford, George,
To do more yard work
Winning, it appears,
Really is "hard work."

1//The Daily Times, Pakistan-IRAN READY TO SHARE MISSILES WITH OTHERS

Iran is ready to share its missile systems with friends and neighbours, said the commander of the Revolutionary Guards, after he showed off missiles including some he said had cluster warheads. Revolutionary Guards Commander-in-Chief Yahya Rahim Safavi said on Sunday that the Guards had thousands of troops trained for suicide missions in case Iran was threatened, although "a US attack is unlikely". "We are able to give our missile systems to friendly and neighbouring countries," Safavi told Al-Alam. Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad Reza Sheibani was quoted as saying that the Islamic Republic was ready to supply air defence systems - without giving specifics - to the Lebanese military.
