Who's Most Ready on Day 1? by Sybil Adelman Sage

It's never clear whom I'll wake up with on Sunday morning, not because I'm promiscuous, but because my husband likes to sleep with the TV on. Today's early morning talking heads were reflecting on the candidates' strengths and flaws. Of particular interest to them this week was whether or not the terrorists will test our next president, the pro-McCain argument being he would be best prepared to head directly from the inauguration to dealing with terrorism.

Nobody pointed out that McCain, being so closely linked to Bush with respect to the war, might be very ready to respond to any attack by waging war on Iran, which seems to intrigue the current administraation and its party planners.

I woke up with Joe Lieberman. Had I slept another ten minutes, I could have woken with Ted Koeppel. It's an argument for sleeping later on Sundays.
