The Key Questions

With the Republicans in seeming political freefall, Americans must decide whether dissatisfaction with the Bush administration’s mishandling of the war and (incredibly) Dennis Hastert’s mishandling of Mark Foley mean the Democrats should be given control of Congress. Aside from economic questions (because the Republicans have done a generally good job here), the question voters must face soberly in an age of terror is whether they trust the Democrats more than the Republicans to keep us safe.

Doesn’t the question answer itself? Let me put it this way: Would you rather have Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Charles Rangel making those decisions? You might want to “send a message” to the Republicans, but what message will you be sending to the likes of North Korea, al Qaeda, and the thugs in Iraq?
