      It is pretty cool to see a young person engaged with politics and paying attention to the issues. I'm not sure how Greenberg counts as an expert though.

      @hoot: after the arrests and detainment of 4 peaceful activists on 8/9, are you surprised that this message board isn't trans-partisan? i'm not a party loyalist...quite honestly, i don't see much difference between the two. but EVERYONE should be able to weigh in... ut should be ashamed that they allowed themselves to be strong-armed into shutting down free speech. "free speech zones"...what a JOKE! AMERICA is a free speech zone!
