Quote for the Day II

"Let us resolve to deal with the world as it is but never to accept that we are powerless to make it better than it is - not perfect, but better. America will lead the cause of freedom in our world not because we think ourselves perfect. To the contrary, we cherish democracy and champion its ideals because we know we are not perfect," - secretary of state Condi Rice, to the Southern Baptist Association. Not far off my formulation in a recent column. Too bad her boss doesn't walk the walk.
