"The Cafferty File": Wounded Clinton?Is a military hotline between Washington and Beijing a good idea?
A dedicated military hotline between Washington and Beijing is irrelevant. The Bush administration would mess up all diplomatic endeavors whether they had a direct line or not.-Chris, Spring Hill, Tennessee
China has replaced the former Soviet Union as the other superpower with the United States. I think it's an excellent idea that the two countries have a direct emergency line to one another.-Susan, Encino, California
Hi Jack, I think it's not only a good idea but absolutely necessary to establish a link with China, right after we change administrations. We need to be cautious about allowing the current administration having any contact with any foreign nation, especially one of this size. -Ed, Wichita, Kansas
Jack, When Mr. Bush was in Beijing, he couldn't walk through a door without getting into trouble. A hotline between Bush and President Hu Jintao could be dangerous diplomatically. President Bush would probably get confused and use it to order Chinese food. -Pat, Pasadena, CaliforniaShould the House proceed with contempt citations against current and former White House aides in connection with the U.S. attorney firings?
Hell yes, continue to investigate/prosecute! Just because the roaches hide when the lights are on, doesn't mean they should be left alone. -Larry, Modesto, California
No, It's time for both the House and the Senate to get on with more pressing matters. It would be great if they both got on with passing the appropriations bills with the Defense Appropriations Bill being the most pressing. -Gene, Appleton, Wisconsin
Yes! Hell yes! They should have been arrested on contempt charges the first time they ignored the subpoenas, just as any other citizen would have been arrested. -Dana, Pennsylvania
No, Bolten and Miers should not be investigated. Too insignificant and many more important subjects Congress should be addressing instead of the continuation of more hearings and investigations. -Rick, Spring, Texas
