Colin Powell

In a lot of ways, I'm a fan of his, so I don't envy the Secretary of State's job to speak in front of the World Summit on Sustainable Development. Especially when it's mentioned that he was jeered for pretending that the Bush Administration cares, really cares, about AIDS in underdeveloped countries and has put a lot of time and money into the problem.

Still, the Summit, which the Bushleaguer chose not to attend does seem to have produced a little progress. Not enough and I'm dismayed by the lack of timetables and targets for moving toward cleaner fuels, but at least it happened.

And I think it's a good sign that over 100 world leaders showed up.

Even if our own halfwitted leader chose to stay home and try to convince Congress that when he said he didn't need their permission to declare war on Iraq, he didn't really mean it and of course he cares what they think.
