    Recent interview with Ron Reagan, Jr. (here is the full story):

    WOODRUFF: Why not? Why not be a Republican?

    REAGAN: Well, I couldn't join a party that, frankly, tolerates members who are bigots for one thing. Homophobes, racists. You know, there's no way I could be a part of a party like that. Just no way.

    WOODRUFF: You've also said, I think, that you did not vote for George W. Bush in 2000. You haven't made secret of that. What are you going to do this year?

    REAGAN: I'll vote for the viable candidate who is capable of unseating George W. Bush.

    WOODRUFF: And presumably, that's John Kerry.

    REAGAN: That's how it looks right now, yes.

    WOODRUFF: So John Kerry? I mean...

    REAGAN: Well, he would be the viable candidate, yes.

    WOODRUFF: What -- what do you think -- I mean, have you talked to your mother about this? Does she -- what does she say about it?

    REAGAN: Well, we don't talk about politics all that much, particularly electoral politics. We talk about stem cell research, for instance, embryonic stem cell research, which she's very involved in and I think will continue to be very involved in.

    This is something she takes very seriously, something I take very seriously, too. And it's shameful this administration has played politics with an issue that ... could be the biggest medical breakthrough in history. This could be bigger than antibiotics. This administration is pandering to the most ignorant segment of our society for votes and throwing up roadblocks to this sort of research. It's absolutely shameful.

    Secondly, the second to commander and Chief, Dick Cheney, was put on the defensive when Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont criticized Cheney of the war profiteering in Iraq by Haliburton. The Reuters article continues:

    Leahy and other Democrats have called for congressional hearings into whether the vice president helped the firm win lucrative contracts in Iraq after the U.S.-led war that toppled Saddam Hussein.

    During their exchange, Leahy noted that Republicans had accused Democrats of being anti-Catholic because they are opposed to some of President Bush's anti-abortion judges, the aides said.

    Then Cheney professionally told Leahy to "fuck off" or "go fuck yourself."
