Traits that are missing from all sides of the playing field in Washington these days.
Strength, Intelligence and Eloquence
I had been searching for the right words to put together how I felt about the Democratic leadership and their "compromise" for the Iraq spending bill.
Last night, Keith Olbermann summed it up brilliantly:
Anyone who believes that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are capable of successfully ending this war and leading the Democratic party to victory in 2008 should consider having their heads examined.
The handling of this war is beginning to take on a lunacy that Kurt Vonnegut, Joseph Heller, George Orwell or Richard Hooker never could have imagined.
To an extent, this is what we've come to expect from the Bush Administration. It's their legacy, and it is what they will be branded with throughout history.
But the Democrats were charged with VERY specific mandates - for CHANGE.
And now look at them.
And for those of you who think that the Presidential election in 2008 is a slam-dunk for the Democrats, think again.
Who will have the courage... the bravery... the intelligence... and the eloquence to actually LEAD this country?
