E-Mail to a Democratic National Committee Member
has boxed himself into a corner, by taking such a pro-war
position, alienating himself from majority opinion in this
nation and beyond.
If the Democrats take an anti-war position that
is just as radical ("No war ever."), then they will be just
as foolish -- even more so, now that our political enemy who
has been so invulnerable has made himself so vulnerable.
But if the Democrats continue to hold the middle
ground -- support thorough UN inspections, so that we hopefully
will not have to go to war, and if we do, only with proof and
preferably with UN support -- the majority opinion in this
country and beyond, then we can also be more readily seen as
more moderate and reasonable in general, which will help us
carry the day on a whole range of issues. This is a Golden
Opportunity to erase the "loser" image for the Party
established in the last election debacle.
What do we stand for anyway?
