LINE IN THE SAND Governor Jeb Bush of Florida--whatever else you want to say about him--seems to be believe in the rule of law:
"The governor is disappointed (at the Supreme Court decision) and will continue to do whatever he can within the law to save Terri's life," Bush spokesman Jacob DiPietre said. (Emphasis added.)
That shouldn't count as high praise. But it puts him at odds with some in his party, including Fred Barnes.

Barnes, as we noted yesterday, has serious problems with the American system. He would prefer to live under a different system.

And when all the public pronouncemens from this hectic week get reviewed and parsed, my hunch is we'll learn that Barnes isn't the only one.
