"Both Texans will be tarred by history for having waged disastrous, unwinnable wars. Both holed up at their Texas ranches whenever they wanted out of Washington." -- You guessed it, GWB and LBJ have some striking similarities. The big difference? Johnson had empathy, and that made him a great leader, despite the ongoing horror of Vietnam. Can't say the same for W., folks. And speaking of his lack of empathy, "peace mom" Cindy Sheehan, camped in front of Compound W., is facing not only runaway pickup trucks and a neighbor firing off his shotgun, but a petition to restrict the protesters to somewhere, you know, less public. Nice.
