For all of us left-wingers: White House put a positive spin on Bush IIs 39% approval rating, theyre calling him the "president of the minorties."

I wouldnt think its a good move make clear UPs political sidings [even though its obvious since they gave the most to W04 re-election of any railroad*], especally when they think Bush I is good enough to be honored with a locomotive. Seriously seems like UP overlooked a lot of better presidents. Remember, politcal favors come in handy when theres a law UP doesnt really like, such as one on the environment or labor. I'll boycott a company for their political beliefs [*cough cough Walmart*].
