    Should appearing under oath include enforced polygraph testing??

    It seems to me that many politicians only pay lip service to religion when they think it will get them votes.

    Wouldn't most people lie to save their careers, hide skeletons in the closet or keep themselves out of prison?

    On important matters, the public needs to know that the truth IS the truth.

    Well, of course she can't tell everything, she is only the holder of some of the most secret information of anybody of the cabinet - it's her job!

    So a polygraph - even if useful, would not be a good idea.

    This is one of those stories that is much ado about nothing really. Clarke stirred the pot, and now the press has something to jump on for a while.

    it should at least be about the inconsistent statements she's been making

    If the reasons given to us for starting a war is "much ado about nothing" ....
    and that the war in Iraq actually hurts our efforts against Al Qeada is "much ado about nothing" ....
    and that this administration consistently lies is "much ado about nothing" ....

    then what is the something we should pay attantion to? Does Bush get a free pass because Laura gives good head and Hilary doesn't?

    I think democracy is best served by an honest government.
