More tough words from the WSJ
In a better world, the U.S. war on terror, at its core, would be bipartisan. That world was what Joe Liebermans politics represented. That world is dead. Democratic support for the Republican administrations plans to fight these terrorists is down to about zero. This means the Democrats must have a plan of their own to defeat terror. Every Republican running for office at every level this fall should force his opponent to describe it. And if they arent certain about the details, they can call Ned Lamont.
Naomi Schaefer Riley:
If the religious left is serious about attracting more people of faith to the Democratic Party--Ms. Seger believes that even evangelicals will gather under the new big tent--its leaders might want to consider the kind of religion that people in America actually practice. Hint: It is judgmental. It sometimes involves public condemnation.
But of course, the religious left is less serious about a politicians loyalty to religious belief than about his loyalty to the Democratic Party. "Hes going to run on the independent ticket," Ms. Sager notes of Mr. Lieberman, with disgust. "What kind of Democrat is that?"
