Bush has supported Bono's idea's on debt reduction and Aids to a greater degree than Clinton ever did, so I don't think Bono is going to turn around and bite Bush in the ass. Politics is about compromise and while the level of funding may not be what it should, be plenty has been accomplished through working with and respecting people rather than the "Rockers Unite Against Bush" thing.

Bono came out in HOT PRESS 2 years ago to say that he supported Bush's war on terrorism and thought they got Afghanistan right. He also stated in that article that he is not a pacifist. This may be disappointing to many very liberal U2 fans, but the fact of the matter is that Bono's views on most things are actually unknown, and I don't buy it when people try to say well Bono is 100% for x y or z policy and 100% against x y and z politician. Bono has a lot of liberal views, but that can't be extrapolated to explain his views on everything.

That is very true, however he did come out against the war on Iraq, and he is downplaying that to the point of not mentioning it.

Clinton also didn't have the majority in Congress, without the Democratic votes none of this would have passed - look at the vote breakdowns. Failure is squarley in Bush's lap.

I don't recall Clinton voting for the level of Aids funding that Bush did this year.

Bono has expressed appreciation for any support he gets on debt relief, AIDS funding, and so forth, no matter who it comes from. I'm sure future trips to the White House *and* Congress are in the works.

It's too bad rockers won't unite to end terrorism or world hunger. Also, are they citing specific reasons they'd like to 'oust Bush' or just kind of doing what they think is cool?
