How Much is Your Child's Life Worth?

To Hillary Clinton -- at least at this point -- it isn't worth torturing a terrorist in order to find out where an imminent attack is taking place.

Of course, it's easy for Clinton to hold that position -- just as it's easy enough for people like Ted Kennedy and John Kerry to support tax increases for "the rich." The latter two have so much wealth that the incremental increases don't really matter. And Hillary Clinton -- as the wife of a former president -- really doesn't have to worry about her own, or her family's, safety should the unmentionable occur.

Actually, I disagree with Ms. Clinton on this point. I am perfectly happy to sanction torture in the preposterous scenario presented, knowing full well that such a scenario is beyond the realm of plausibility.

I will note the irony of the title of this piece, coming as it does in the runup to Mr. Bush's promised veto of the SCHIP bill. It appears that Mr. Bush values the health of our children at less than $110 billion.
