Press Secretaries

The appointment of Tony Snow was a masterstroke. No other Press Secretary to the President was a well-known commentator with his own following. Not Bill Moyers, not Ari Fliescher, not Marlin Fitzwater. It seems to me that there will be at least a few voters --- and it looks like the 2006 Congressional elections will be very close --- will say that if Tony says President Dubya is doing a good job, and explains why --- they will vote Republican in the Fall. BTW ours is not exactly a democratic system: California and Wyoming each get two Senators --- and we complain about the new constitution of Iraq. What has made America #1 is it's open and innovative culture.
