Will the Opposition Lead? This is a really good editorial from the New York Times no less, on the war in Iraq and the need for Democrats to speak out intelligently on it, in stead of the way they have been. In other words, they need to be more Lieberman and less Kennedy.

As for the results [of the war in Iraq] — well, in one respect, these have turned out to be, in spite of everything, almost comically successful. Baathism's super-weapons may have been a figment of the universal imagination; but as soon as the United States elevated this figment into a world crisis, astonishing progress was made in tracking down weapons programs and trafficking in Libya, Iran, Dubai and Pakistan. Some people will go on insisting that sudden progress on these matters has nothing to do with Iraq, and the dominoes tumbled simultaneously by sheer coincidence — but some people will believe anything.
