Quote of the day

“I’ve got to own up to my mistake, which is that ultimately it’s important for this administration to send a message that there aren’t two sets of rules. You know, one for prominent people and one for ordinary folks who have to pay their taxes.”

President Obama, commenting on his mistake in running Tom Daschle for a post in his Administration.

Wow! When was the last time you heard a prominent politician saying something like that — and meaning it?
