Politics is the art of the possible. Elections give Americans a choice. The choice is always between better or worse. There never has been a perfect candidate.
Some emailers have complained that I automatically defend President Bush and refuse to acknowledge his mistakes.
Not so.To be sure, I enthusiatically supported President Bush against Vice President Al Gore in 2000 and Senator John Kerry in 2004, because I found him immensely preferable, although not perfect.
