A Bi-Partisan Statement for Partisan Times
When George W. Bush said that we can't win the war on terror, I immediately thought, "That is the first sensible thing I've heard him say on the subject." I was as dismayed by his retraction as I was at the Kerry campaign's decision to pounce on the moment and claim that they knew the war was winnable. I do understand why neither candidate can look like a defeatist. I do get why they talk this way. My dismay stems from the fact that in our political arena, talking sense is a losing strategy.
