Mike Gravel


Finally, a US politician who speaks the brutal truth. Mike
Gravel, a Democratic Presidential Candidate 2008, might not
make it all the way to the White House, but just the fact that
someone-- someone-- actually dares to say the truth
gives me hope.

Remember, Gravel, when he was Senator, was the guy who--
all by himself-- pushed the Senate to drop the draft back in
the Seventies.

I doubt he will make it to the White House- heck I dont
even think he will become the official Democratic
Candidate. Clinton and Obama have too much clout. That being
said, I think that his refreshing honesty will contrast very
nicely against the abyssmal moral standing of the current
administration. But if he does it right, some of the
outspokenness might rub off onto the other candidates.

We'll see.
