Governor Walker of Wisconsin and four of his supporters won recall elections rather handily last week. I found it interesting that Yahoo News called his 53 percent to 46 percent margin of victory a narrow victory! In fact, this victory could even be considered a landslide, because the victory was by a larger margin than Walker's win in his original election in 2010. It is clearly a mandate by the people of Wisconsin.

There was joke that made the rounds when Bill Clinton was trying to figure out how to allow gays in the military without upsetting morale. "Gays in the military," the joke went.

After 13 years of war in Afghanistan - the longest in US history - the US government has achieved no victory. Afghanistan is in chaos and would collapse completely without regular infusions of US money. The war has been a failure, but Washington will not admit it.
