Quote for the Weekend

"You can only do two things with a base. You can sit on it and watch the world go by, or you can build on it." --Colin Powell

I think one obvious way you can judge a party's baseline health is the way it treats its centrists. Forget about coddling them or even listening to them, but just how it treats them; the tone taken. And in that category, how could you give the Republicans anything but an F these days? Powell can talk about his GOP convention appearances and Jack Kemp and Ronald Reagan all he wants -- the party, for now, won't listen.

When the Republicans get "Fs" -- in anything -- the country gets an "A."
