Bush was President will recall only too well the constant furor on the Left over the administration‚Äôs supposed obsession with the idea of bringing theocracy to bear in America. This complaint was especially shrill in regards to the idea of voucherizing education, an idea that made many a progressive sit bolt upright in bed, sweating and shaking at the idea that someone, somewhere might hear the word ‚ÄúGod‚ÄĚ in an educational context. ‚ÄúWhy,‚ÄĚ they complained, ‚Äúif we let him get away with it, the President would probably model all our schools after seminaries!‚ÄĚ
