I listened to Ted Kennedy talk to Charlie Rose today. I had not done the math before, but Kennedy is the 3rd longest serving Senator in history. (longest was Strom Thurmond). But I digress.
Kennedy made the comment to Rose that the Government's budget was a moral document. It defined our priorities. I wonder if you could consider the budget of a political party to be a moral document as well. Does it not defined what is important enough to spend our scant resources trying to accomplish?
With Committee and Working Group budgets due now, how well do we live up to our own moral code?
