The Benefit of the Doubt
Via Blogs for Bush, an astute comparison: Howard Dean on Tom DeLay:
"There's corruption at the highest level of the Republican Party, and they're going to have to face up to that one of these days, because the law is closing in on Tom DeLay... "I think he's guilty...of taking trips paid for by lobbyists, and of campaign-finance violations during his manipulation of the Texas election process."Howard Dean on Osama bin Laden:
"I've resisted pronouncing a sentence before guilt is found," Dean said during the 2004 Democratic primary campaign. "I still have this old-fashioned notion that even with people like Osama, who is very likely to be found guilty, we should do our best not to, in positions of executive power, not to prejudge jury trials."
