U.S.: History Repeating Itself?

Silly me, I didn't realize that Ted Kennedy was fiddling with Rome too...

"A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist."
- Cicero (106 B.C. --- 43 B.C.)
