So here's us, on the raggedy edge.

Congratulations America

A Democratic congress is a good thing, assuming that the Democratic party can forge and pursue a focused agenda rather than the scattered one its members have been lobbying for over the past 12 years. It’s easier to be in opposition than it is to be in control.

Those who are applauding the resignation of Donald Rumsfeld and the Republican defeat at the voting booths as a sure sign of change in Iraq should be more subdued: the executive branch controls foreign policy, not congress; the President of the United States is the Commander in Chief, not congress.

Iraq will not change much as a result of this. That will take a very brave Democratic President.
