    about your take on this, and I think you are right, is that the neoconservatives have probably damaged the legitimate effort to spread democracy with their focus on pre-emptive unilateralism. Isolationism, which can be seen in the debate on immigration, could spread from the Republicans to the Democrats.

      You're correct, we face the threat that the debate could focus on the supposed failure of internationalism instead of the actual failure of unilateralism.  But for domestic political reasons, I'm not too worried about the isolationist argument on immigration spreading to Dems.  The political advantage of a middle-ground approach is with the Dems, and the only real hostility to it is with conservatives.  It's not a wedge issue to be used against Democrats, it's a wedge issue to be used by Democrats.

      The revolution will not be televised, but we'll analyze it to death at The Next Hurrah.

        isn't it?  If they're gone then their neocon and executive power ideas will die too.  

        We need both of them to retire... and the sooner the better!  Say a prayer because Cheney isn't in a good position right now, and I don't think Fitz will back off from calling him to testify unless some other strange thing happens!
