Perhaps I am not giving my fellow Americans enough credit, however, it seems to me that the Democratic presidential field last night just committed suicide en masse, with Hillary Clinton the last to swallow the poison by holding out until this afternoon to endorse New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s proposal to give illegal immigrants some form of driver’s licenses.
Eternal Lord, who makest the winds and clouds obey Thy will and protectest the eagle in his flight and the dove seeking safety, uphold me as I soar into the sky and fly above land and sea. Pilot my ship safely through the air and give me nerves which are steady and relaxed, a mind, calm and composed, as I sail on to my destination. Give me a successful takeoff and at journeys’ end a safe landing, that no harm come to me and those entrusted to my care.
Hold Thy protecting hand over me as I pass through storm and clouds – and let me not lose my way as I fly by instrument through fog and darkness.
Above all, keep me in Thy grace and favor for Jesus’ sake, and let my last landing bring me safely into Thy presence, redeemed and saved to praise Thee eternally and forever. Amen

Whether President Sarkozy can indeed bring France back from the decayed state of her self-imposed, socialist delusion is yet to be seen. But from this side of the big pond, it looks as though the French may have finally come to their senses, and recognized once again the true bond of like-thinking liberty lovers in their Country and ours. Lest our youth have forgotten, it was French money and mercenaries that helped us American patriots win our own independence. And their generous gift of Lady Liberty has graced our own New York harbor for more than a century.
