There were new moves and some basic confusion in Washington this week.
President Bush announced fresh steps on Sudan and global AIDS. Barack Obama spoke to health care. Hollywood politico Fred Thompson signaled he may join the GOP race for the White House.
But on the Iraq war there were mixed messages: cut troops by half? Stay five years? Stay fifty like Korea? All of the above?
On global warming, President Bush snubs European plans then offers his own, but no one knows if it's for real.
Then there's that TB tourist. Good lord.
