"If this case is just about sex, then robbery is just about money."
But after listening to House Managers rehash the President's and others testimony through charts and videotape for the better part of six hours, Democrats are not convinced.
Sen. TOM HARKIN/D-IA EVERYTHING I HEARD HERE TODAY-- I HAD HEARD BEFORE.
It was remarks like that re-ignited the potentially explosive debate over whether or not to call witnesses to the Senate Floor.

The Volvo trucks plant in Pulaski County will add 13-hundred new jobs IF the General assembly approves the new incentive package.
Governor Gilmore announced the plan Wednesday night.
And local officials expect the Assembly to go along.
If the deal passes, it will take three or four years to add the new jobs.

Roanoke's N-double-A-C-P must hold another election for President within the next month.
Brenda Hale beat Martin Jeffrey by three votes last November.
National Officials say part of the membership list was missing so many would-be voters were turned away and that may have influenced the result.
For now, Martin Jeffrey gets to keep his seat as president.
