AS opposed to Clinton putting them in the cabinet?
Well, now, if you want to get into THAT...
The Reagan administration wound up with almost thirty felony convictions.
The Clinton administration had, what... three?
So far, Bush has stayed just under Clinton's numbers (one convicted felon in charge of "Homeland Security", one internationally wanted war criminal in the person of Henry Kissinger) but he's got his third waiting in the wings, if the government's still planning on installing what's-his-face as the puppet leader after we leave...
Not exactly something to be proud of. At least in Clinton's years we made a little forward progress.

" Seeing these wrestling managers walking around with their big guts or their big breasts or their big mouths gave us hop that someday, we too could be part of the show, even if we weren't 6'5" with expletives tattooed on the back of our necks. Plus, anyone getting paid thousands of dollars to stand around in neon suits yelling 'KILL HIM!' towards the ring was certainly a profession to look forward to." http://www.x-entertainment.com/messages/559.html

Next up, Colin Powell and Osama! We'll connect them!
Osama's family is rich. OF COURSE they have investments. And it is not even Bechtel they are involved in, it is a company Bechtel helped found- an INDEPENDANT company. You act like Osama himself is the CEO of Bechtel!
Too bad they didn't find a document that proves that Osama really is the CEO of Bechtel in Iraq.

This happens all the time, I don't know what the big deal is. I'm not saying it's right, but most politicians travel with security, especially during election campaigns, because this sort of thing is way more common than it should be.
