You know, if the Dems had any real issues we wouldn't keep hearing all this crap about Halliburton. Now we have that old fossil Lautenberg from NJ (you know, the corpse they warmed over to replace Torricelli, a guy with real ethical problems) proposing barring the government from awarding Iraq reconstruction contracts to companies that maintain close financial ties to the president, vice president or members of the president's Cabinet.
Fine, if you're into the politics of spite. But make damned sure that you include Congress too, and their staffs. It wouldn't surprise me if Lautenberg were senile, but somehow I doubt that the omission of Congress from his prohibited group was an oversight.
