    What with all the debating between the Obama and Clinton camps going on here lately I thought I'd serve up a plate of humble pie (of which I am also partaking): today's WaPo features a front-page article on how Hillary and Barack have both padded their resumes.

    Reminds me of the fable about the little girl who finds a wounded scorpion on road, brings it home and nurses it back to health. When fully recovered the scorpion stings her, and as she dies she asks him why he did it. "Well, I am a scorpion, you know."

    Meh. The piece strikes me as long on smear and short on facts, with regard to both candidates. Try reading just the direct quotes, and you'll see what I mean.

    Oh I tend to agree, HG. But the general idea behind it served to make me pause for a moment and reality check. A politician is a politician at the end of the day.
