Which is more important?

Filed under: — Different River @ 7:50 pm

Which is more important, getting Democrats elected, or establishing democracy and freedom in the Middle East? Or to put it another way, if the Bush administration’s policies result in democracy and freedom in the Middle East, is that a bad thing because it makes Bush look capable and intelligent, and makes it hard for Democrats in the U.S. to get elected?

Nancy Soderberg, who served in the Clinton adminstration as Deputy Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs discussed the issue with Jon Stewart, and their conclusion is not what you might think. Well, it might be what you think, if you are very cynical about Democrats.
