Political Power and the Religious Right

Will simplifies some very complex issues in this post on power, but the overall point is still highly valid. If I remember correctly, the Reagan and Clinton administrations had as many members end up in jail/prison as the Nixon administration did. There's nothing sacred about political power, regardless of who's got it. The old saying still holds true, "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." (or something like that ;-) )
