Bush's Veto

Well, I was wondering what I would write about today, and this story just fell in my lap. President Bush just vetoed - his first veto in 5 1/2 years-the bill for stem cell research. I have to say I am disappointed with this news because I do support this research. I think the thing that bothers me most is that Bush seems to have issued the veto because he is personally opposed to the bill. There are many Republicans who do not oppose the bill. Heck, most Americans do support this research. So, is it proper for one man to make the ultimate decision about this bill? I thought we are living in a democracy. Election time will tell.
