A Gift to the Right from a Weak-Willed Left?

Paul Krugman of the New York Times definitely gets it, but will the Democratic "leadership"?

Time will tell whether 2008 will be a turning point or just another failed opportunity to stop the United States' descent into full-on fascism in the 21st century.

Saddens me to say it, but the man has a point. I think I'd have liked to see more of a distinction between partisanship-as-taking-a-stand-of-principle vs. partisanship-as-towing-the-party-line-at all-costs, though.
