That is funny Chris. Keep riding around in a bus, not knowing where you are, not knowing where you have been and not knowing where you are going will qualify you for public office. However, you would have to stop admitting you make mistakes.

Talking about a "mixed emotions" kind of situation...not passing the deeply flawed, big agriculture benefiting Farm Bill is kind of a relief.

A failure to do this should equal a failure for re-election for all concerned.
