Questions for Democrats

Two years after going down in flames with John Kerry, today Democrats are strutting their stuff. Running without an idea except “blame Bush,” the Democrats have seized control of the House and may well do so in the Senate. Once they sweep up the empty champagne bottles and confetti, the Democrats (and the Americans who put them in power) face some vital questions:

Will they force the President to pull the troops out of Iraq, crushing that democracy and emboldening terrorists worldwide? Will they weaken our ability to track the financial transactions, and listen in on the conversations, of America’s enemies? What will they do about Iran and North Korea? Will they pull the plug on the expanding economy by raising taxes?

They may find it’s easier, and more fun, to attack and smear than it is to actually lead in a time of war.
