Another problem I have is when journalists want the candidates to make statements directly to the people of the Middle East. Someone asked John Edwards a completely idiotic question in that regard during the South Carolina debate (the only one I saw). Even my man Tom Friedman, in last Sunday's column tried to imagine a hypothetical "hawkish" statement by John Kerry in a hypothetical Meet The Press appearance.

Here's the deal. One --- only Americans vote. You want to vote, come be an American citizen.

Two --- as little as I like the guy we have in place now, you can only have one President at a time. See further --- Marlon Brando and James Caan --- The Godfather. See also ---- no statements of any relevance --- Abraham Lincoln --- winter of 1860-61.
