As a matter of fact, many Democrats were in favor of a line item veto, and Clinton was one of 
them.  Trouble is, they didn't have the votes to make it a constitutional amendment, and 
when they tried to do it by legislation, it was thrown out by the courts.  I think a line item 
veto, which most governors have, is a good idea.

Agreed.  So does this mean you agree that the Republicans should shut up about the 
Democrats' blocking of a few of Bush's judicial appointments, since they blocked so many 
more of Clintons?

If Colmes acted like more than a stooge for Hanity, I might be happier.
