Ah, Democrats…


The good news, in terms of foreign policy, about Democrats winning elections is that they’re not Republicans. The bad news is that some Democrats are Tom Lantos, chair of our House Foreign Affairs Committee, so you wind up with congressional Democrats attacking Iraq Study Group members from the right, coming out firmly against negotiating with Syria or Iran. Democratic hawks are probably sensible enough to not actually want to see a bigger regional war, but they’re certainly not going to do anything to stop it from happening.
