  •  having a D in the WH will help (6+ / 0-)

    (that's way different than 2006), but we'll need more than that.

    •  RE more than that ... (1+ / 0-)

      see comment below ... it is what I'm working with a bunch of candidates. ....

      FYI: Accident-Only has me particularly perturbed at the moment ... and this discussion made me think of it.

    •  I'm interested to see what a Dem WH will do (0+ / 0-)

      about the Biological Weapons Convention, the ABM treaty, the Chemical Weapons Convention, and all the other arms-control treaties that the neocons unilaterally discarded.

      Alas, since nobody seems to really care about it, my suspicion is that the Dems will do . . . nothing.  After all, the Dem leadership wants "The New American Century" just as much as the Repugs do, and they're just as willing to institute a militarized national-security state to get it.

      Whether Obama is willing to fight his own party over it, remains to be seen.

      Recent events indicate that it's . . . well . . . kinda unlikely.
