"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

The Audacity of Civility in Politics

As everyone has heard, the Democrats are in a tizzy over comments made by President Bush in Israel.

Candidate Obama gave Senator McCain flak for "embracing" the president's "attacks on Democrats," and "suggesting that I wasn't fit to protect this nation that I love."

At a town hall meeting in Watertown, SD Obama added, "So much for civility."

To which one could add, 'so much for the civility of those the Senator from IL has surrounded himself with since the beginning of his political career.'
