News of the day 12/24/04

Well today there were two pieces of news that stood out to me. One was Mr. Bush's last order today before leaving the White house for Camp David, for his Christmas break. He reissued his list of conservative nominees for federal judge openings to Congress. I am glad Mr. Bush has taken this strong stand for a traditional and historical interpretation of our Constitution.

Also today's visit to Iraq by secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld as described in this article

I am glad that Mr. Rumsfeld is not afraid to go where our troops go every day. I am also glad that he visited them at such a critical time, when our troops need more encouragment then ever after that terrible attack on the dining hall. (Even though he didn't plan the trip because of that attack.)
