"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

TIME.com: Why Iran Won't Back Down -- Page 1

TIME.com: Why Iran Won't Back Down -- Page 1: "One of the ironies of Iran's latest confrontation with the West is that it is the product of are you ready for this? democratic politics. President Mahmoud Ahmedinajad's move towards restarting work on the country's nuclear program is the classic maneuver of an elected leader caught in a political bind."

Now I think I have heard everything (not likely). There is enough in this piece to be plausable, but it does not quite strike home.

It may take a little time but, look for this to be the lefts new line.

Thanks Time
