Hopefully they will share all the great stories about "their
visits to the White House" and how lovely the Lincoln
Bedroom chats really were. Still too early to discuss
Hillary's next Presidential Primary race?

I guess that I am still surpsrised at how ugly the GOP can get. I remember the good times when Bill and Al were in the White House. It has been nothing but doom since Bush took over. I'm not even saying that he was elected. When I look at Haslam, I see another Corker, and I don't believe that TN can survive another Corker or Alexandra. Mike has a great father that helped TN in so many ways, and he will do as well or better. Who would you like to come into TN for the GOP? Maybe, Rush, Beck or Palin to name a few.

Into TN for the GOP, ps? Anyone who doesn't the a reputation like Billy boy. I agree with you on Alexander. Has he ever had a job that wasn't in politics? It would be nice if they thought they were in there to represent us.
