More Political Questions: A Pox On Both Your Houses Edition

I started my 20 political questions here.  No one has answered any of them.  Today, I'll be bipartisan and ask the same questions to both political parties.

11.  Why is Dick Cheney being given a pass on his book?  No matter what one believes about enhanced interrogation torture, the man apologetically took the nation to war under false pretenses.  Now that I think about it, he makes Dick Nixon look like an Eagle Scout.

12.  What does it take to gain political power in Washington D.C.?  Quite frankly, if Pelosi, Reid, Boehner, and McConnell are the best people the parties have there, it can't be that hard.  I'd be more impressed if it looked as if they had read Machiavelli because it appears that they try to be Machiavellian but really suck at it.

13.  I realize this might be a naive question, but which leaders, in or out of office, serve as the conscience of your respective parties?

14.  Will you seriously try to do things to shrink the wealth gap or is being barely ahead of Rwanda good enough for you?

15.  All of you claim to listen to American people.  How many of your personal friends in your states or districts are of the other party?  How many make under $75,000 a year?
