unlike madonna, rem. dixie chicks etc. who risked their career and spoke out against him, bono was only an ass kissing puppet +
So I suppose it would've been better to tell the millions of people in Africa that their lives are worth less than the discomfort of working with George W. Bush, right? Better for millions to die from preventable disease than for Bono to spend time with that guy, right?

A few Africans? If you were familiar with U2 and Bono, you'd know that millions of African have their lives at stake.

Yeah, those two wars were wrong and terrible. But Bono had to do what he had to do. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Or should I say dawn?

Did anybody say that? No.

Like it or not, Bush was the president at that time. If you want to make a difference, you don't wait 8 years until a guy's out of office before bending the ear of the President of the United States.

As president, Bush did some bad things, no doubt. But his help for African aid is an undeniably good thing, and it wouldn't have happened if Bono refused to work with him.

That an Irish rock singer was able to positively effect change from the American government is amazing in and of itself. To expect him to be able to do it on more than one front is asking a laughable amount from Bono.

Maybe Bono can work on getting the Illuminati on board this time? If Iovine lets him.

I do think Chris brings up an interesting point. How much should we "compromise" to achieve a "higher" goal? For instance, Abraham Lincoln is considered one of the masters of this art. But many considered him weak and a sellout. Is compromise a necessary evil?
