Kos has some thoughts on a leaked White House memo that outlines Bush's re-election agenda. While it is not surprising that war and homeland security top the agenda for Bushies forthcoming political assaults on America, Kos notes the heartening signs of Democrats finally starting to call Bush on his cravenness. I agree with Kos that a strong Democratic party can only be good for American security. When only one side is allowed to dictate the terms of any policy debate, foreign or domestic, it increases the chances of arrogance and error from arrogance. It is only through real opposition that the Democrats can hope to make a difference and, maybe, regain power. Let's just hope the DNC doesn't blow this opportunity like they did the leak last year of a Rove powerpoint presentation that made essentially the same points as this memo.
