Dodd knocks Edwards, Clinton for trying to limit debates

SALT LAKE CITY — Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd took issue Saturday with comments John Edwards and Hillary Rodham Clinton were overheard making on limiting the number of Democrats in presidential debates.

“I’d remind them that the mic is always on,” Dodd told reporters Saturday after addressing a state convention of Utah Democrats.

“Celebrity and money are not going to decide this race,” he said. “People take some offense at it in these early primary and caucus states.”

Edwards, a former North Carolina senator, and New York Sen. Clinton were overheard by broadcast microphones after an NAACP forum in Detroit on Thursday, saying that debates should be limited to only a handful of candidates.

“We should try to have a more serious and a smaller group,” Edwards said, and Clinton agreed.

“Our guys should talk,” Clinton said, complaining the format had “trivialized” the discussion.

Famous people think they are above the Law

Posted by quotes on July 14, 2007

Above the law

The fact that President Bush commuted Lewis “Scooter” Libby’s sentence shows that there are different rules for those who are Bush’s buddies and the rest of the citizens of our country. It just proves that it’s not what you know but who you know.

Bush’s action weakens our court system by sending the message that the administration and its friends should not be held to the same standard of justice as ordinary citizens.

Why is it that famous people think they do not have to pay their debt to society when they have broken the law?

Another example is Paris Hilton.

I respect Martha Stewart because she served her time in prison.

No one is above the law.

Ina Nechamkin, Skokie from the Chicago Tribune
