Blank Check

One year ago today, the House and Senate voted to give President Bush blank check authority to use military force against Iraq. In infamous Harper's Index fashion, the Dean for America campaign gives us the last year by the numbers. It's not a pretty picture, and it's not getting any better. Is Bush PR spinning right out of orbit? Um, yeah, that happened several years ago, but finally people are starting to notice.

In the race to decide who's going to replace Bush, the Kerry campaign is rumored to be having troubles, and the trouble in the Clark campaign is more than a rumor. Those links come from Scripting News, where Dave Winer is trying to get the campaigns to blog. I think it's a great idea.

Wow...I can't believe it has been a year. I remember that it passed the Senate on October 11th, because today is my dog's birthday, so it is a memorable day. But it seems like it has been a lot longer since that day last much has changed. Mainly for me...I graduated high school, moved to DC, and started college since this time last year...but doesn't it feel like our country is a lot different also?
