Re: Head of State vs. Head of Government

Because being elected to office requires that one be refined and diplomatic so as not to be an embarrassment to the people he represents.

Re: The Lust to Acquire

I'm so jelly. :mrgreen:

I'd pick one up, but I've got no where to put it. Cleaning out the garage is on the list this year. So maybe.

I should buy a drone.

On hearing of his passing the first thing I thought of wasn't Wattergate, it wasn't "head shot", it was Robert Conrad who played him in the TV movie version of his autobiography Will.

Nor did anyone ask him why he read from prepared talking points during answers to three questions on foreign policy. No recent president has felt the need to do that.
