Barack Obama, is, he, for the first time I think, as a black leader in America, has come to the American people not as a victim, but rather as a leader.As ABC asked:
The first black leader to not come to the American people as a victim? Um…. Martin Luther King Jr.? Malcolm X? Doug Wilder? Do I even need to make this list?So according to Sen.

McCaskill on government and student loans Without the federal government, students would never be able to go to college. Private scholarships and academic scholarships earned through hard work are nonexistent! McCaskill and micro-unions The Senator runs from questioning on the issue. You gotta give that poor fellow some credit for trying. Claire McCaskill and the "Air Claire" scandal" McCaskill vs Coal Who could forget this:
"I'm no fan of coal, I hate coal."Yikes, considering Missouri is a coal state. What will McCaskill say next? *Editor's note: Font issue fixed. The site has suffered through some attacks today which caused quite a bit of wonkiness but all is fixed.
