I’m here at the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, where they’re expecting over 7,000 attendees, as well as hundreds of members of Congress, to show their support for strong ties between the U.S. and Israel. John McCain is scheduled to speak at around 9:30 inside a large darkened auditorium, surrounded by big video screens.
I just read some excerpts of McCain’s speech, and it includes several sharp barbs at Barack Obama over his vow to conduct unconditional presidential talks with Iran, his opposition to the bill declaring Iran’s Revolutionary Guards a terrorist group, and his stance against the surge strategy in Iraq. It will be interesting to see how those assaults will be received by the crowd, because it will provide some sense of how big of a hill Obama will have to climb on Wednesday, when he gives a much-anticipated talk to the conference during which he hopes to quell fears about his stance toward Israel. (For added drama, Hillary Clinton will be speaking the same morning, which will be a day after the final Democrtatic primaries in Montana and South Dakota.)

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
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?
