I think that, to finally force the Democrats to act like adults where the War on Terror is concerned, it will be necessary to put one in the White House.
There, I've said it. It's painful, for someone in my position - but I think it'd be impossible for anyone further to the right than I to even consider. But I think the Republic will survive the obvious disadvantages, particularly if the Congress remains relatively evenly matched.
The only question is, who?
If the GOP nomination is sewn up by the time the Primaries are held in my state, I may vote as a Democrat and cast a ballot for Barack Hussein Obama. I wouldn't be able to keep my gorge down long enough to vote for Clinton, and Edwards is just another narcissistic peacock.
