I wish I could have seen Hillary's face...

Do we, or do we, have a MAN in the White House!

Newsweek...Last year, even though Bush talked endlessly about the supposed joys of private accounts, he never proposed a specific plan to Congress and never put privatization costs in the budget. But this year, with no fanfare whatsoever, Bush stuck a big Social Security privatization plan in the federal budget proposal, which he sent to Congress on Monday.

His plan would let people set up private accounts starting in 2010 and would divert more than $700 billion of Social Security tax revenues to pay for them over the first seven years....

Can you just imagine the choking and gasping and sputtering as word of this spread among Democrats? They've been feeling so sure they had workers safely confined to the plantation for years to come, and now here comes ol' Marse Linkum, with yet another Emancipation Proclamation...I'm going to be cackling all day...
