Re:Maybe Dan Quayle wasn't so bad?
That's presumably what Colin Powell had in mind in "My American Journey" when he wrote, "I am angry that so many of the sons of the powerful and well placed . . . managed to wrangle spots in Reserve and National Guard units."

Hmmmmm.....I wonder why nobody has asked him about that statement and whether he stands by it today.

Even Bush I has admitted that selecting Quayle was a mistake. In fact, it may have helped cost him the election in '92. I knew people who said they were voting for Clinton not because they liked him or because they disliked Bush, but because they feared that something would happen to Bush and we'd end up with President Quayle.

President Quayle, yikes.

Quayle smarter than Dubya, double yikes.
