Advice For Democrats

Andrew Sullivan in the Sunday Times:
Could a Democrat outmanoeuvre Bush? Think of this as a possible campaign platform: get our troops out of Iraq and Arabs out of our ports. Stop the corporate power structure from depressing American wages and enforce real border control. Invest in energy independence and get the oil from Canada. Bring our boys home and keep our borders safe. Screw the Saudis and their best friends, the Bush family.

Think of it as a testosterone injection for the Democrats — an almost irresistible, if equally irresponsible, agenda to win back control of Congress in November.

Here’s my bet: if the Democrats don’t seize that platform, many Republicans will. And Bush will be powerless to stop them.
