I am not a big Peter Beinart fan, but he absolutely nails this one.

Privately, some Democrats, while admitting that they haven't exactly been taking the high road, say they have no choice, that in a competition with Karl Rove, nice guys finish last. But even politically, that's probably wrong. The Democratic Party's single biggest foreign policy liability is not that Americans think Democrats are soft. It is that Americans think Democrats stand for nothing, that they have no principles beyond political expedience. And given the party's behavior over the past several months, it is not hard to understand why.

Read the whole thing.

At least on the national scene, democrats stand for nothing but 'I hate republicans and especially George Bush.'

I've enjoyed reading your comments on The Liberal Avenger!
