"Congratulations" to George W. Bush. He has now taken a fair question and
used it to get more press than any other person running for president. A
whole story has been written to tell about this "poor picked-on man" and
how it's "none of our business to know about his personal life."

I believe that we have heard this story before, say by a certain member of
the White House now - and we wanted him impeached.

All of the other candidates who answered "no" to the question of cocaine
use are barely mentioned in the press.

One of the qualities that I am looking for in a president is honesty and
forthrightness. If I wanted more lies, deceit and secrets, I would find a
way to let Bill Clinton run for a third term. He offers those qualities

I'm not asking for perfection, but I am also not asking for another sap. If
he can't answer simple questions, then perhaps he may not have the hard
answers for later.
