In my opinion, anybody who occupies a position of public trust--and that includes all federal offices--owes a duty first to do what is best for the country (or political subdivision that they represent) and only secondarily to their political party. Placing the party above the country leads to something that looks a lot like the Soviet Union or China. Bad juju!
As an aside, the airwaves this afternoon are afire with the story of NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer and the prostitution ring. Yet another illustration of what happens when a politician puts his own personal agenda ahead of the publics.
As the line from the old protest song goes, "When will they ever learn?"
