We shall see. He said he will stop. If he stops there is and there was not even a picture of any hypocrisy. If he stops then there was no addiction. If he does not stop there is still no hypocrisy. Gambling is not illegal and is, in fact, heavily promoted by most of our state governments.It is not immoral any more than eating chocolate is immoral. I don't like gambling. I don't like fishing, either. I don't accuse fishermen or gamblers of hypocrisy if they counsel prudence and fair dealing. Bennett's gambling, considering his capabilities, is no more excessive than is having a second beer.

This is nothing more than a witch hunting, IMHO. What about KKK Bird? What about Slick Willie, lying under oath, before a Grand Jury? What about the Progressive Caucus being a front name for their true aspirations and ambitions: making America a Socialist state, contrary to our Constitution, contrary to their oaths of office? What about their mocking the death of a man by holding a Funerally? What about Slick Willy providing technical info./equipment to the Chinese/N. Koreans? What about Billy the Pig bombing an aspirin factory but not taking OBL when he could have, four different times, which would have prevented thousands dying? What about Hitlery calling the conservatives a VRWC when we didn't like what the Commander in Sinks was doing, yet, she rabidly attacks the Bush Administration? I don't, myself, don't approve of gambling as a routine, only because I think that it can easily lead to addiction or financial problems; however, so does drinking, smoking, drugs, etc. None are worse nor better than the other (well, alcohol and drugs are for me, but there's reasons why---family history....I don't want to "catch it" : ).
