Is that a Bandwagon? Hill and Bill: 08

Rick James, in the Post Chronicle:

We taxpaying Americans, blessed with common sense, have seen a problem with the southern border. It's rag tag fence, full of holes with no one watching it. And so we wait. We wait for at least one lone voice in Washington to address the problem. We wait for anyone of political power across the fruited plain to stand up and address the madness. All was silent, until a man rose from Santa Fe along with a woman in Washington whose so-called home is in New York.

Mark this one up for the Democrats. They, led by Bill Richardson and Hillary Clinton, a possible ticket in '08, have drawn first blood in the next big issue. Out of the gate, into the primaries, the Democrats have a leg up on the Grand Ol' Party.

Hope there's room on the bandwagon for them!
