How about you?
Presidential pay is not much compared to the responsibilities. Money comes after retirement, when you write books & give lectures.

Sidenote: I guess for W, lectures will be out and he will need to hire people to do his books.

FYI, in the CD Education forum, there was a thread about Asians now being discrinimated against. Basically, since many universities are setting race quotas, Asians are ending up cometing against eash other and despite higher grades than non-Asians, not getting in. There is an ongoing lawsuit on this. Colleges are doing this based on "overall merit" of the candidate -aka -non-grade related things to justify this. Imagine if you applied as a fireman and they also wanted to see if you could fly kites or something unrelated to the job responsibilities. I am not too familiar with the details - but there was a lengthy discussion in that forum about Asians ( mostly chinese / indians) ending up being discriminated against.

Let me show you again: quote I referred to is in italics below: the way it was said ("educations") was funny to me. I am confused as to what you are trying to get at - let me know.

This is what happens when you allow women and minorities to get educations.

Default White males out of vogue?

I think according to CNN white males are out of vogue. They did everything possible to destroy Hillary Clinton. Hillary won every single large state in the country except Illinois. Imagine, California, Texas, Florida, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, ...and when Hillary lost a couple of smaller states in a row, the pro-Obama media made an arbitrary implication that Hillary is going to drop out of the race, long before there was any reason for her to consider it. They did everything to push her out of the way, and I don't think ANY Hillary supporter should vote for Barack Hussein Obama.

The real Sarah Palin is gradually being revealed. Notice that they had to pick a "white male" Rudy Giulliani to give a synopsis at the end of McCain's speech after the debate---this did not go unnoticed. Rudy Giullian would have been a perfect choice as a running mate for McCain, but sadly Rudy had both the wrong plumbing, and his white ethnicity clearly disqualifies him. Sadly, even being the first potential Italian means nothing. Only a woman or African American will do...
