There are powerful forces that want to abandon the peace in Iraq. If we abandon Iraq, will a radical anti-USA government emerge? Is the Democratic Party demanding we repeat the mistakes made at the end of Charlie Wilson’s War? br> — David Moshinsky /p>

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
