DEMOCRATS' SENATE LEADER IN LOCKSTEP WITH TED KENNEDY

Harry Reid, the Democrats' Senate Leader, will join House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi today in echoing Ted Kennedy's pusillanimous call for an exit strategy to return troops home from Iraq. Seems the Democrats are beside themselves over the Bush Administration's success in pulling off national elections in Iraq over the weekend, so rather than salute the Iraqis who courageously turned out to vote in big numbers, they'd rather signal to the insurgents that at least one major American political party is ready to pull the rug out from under a people striving clearly now to free themselves from terror's grip. They appear, more and more, to be the Desparation Party, and Reid seems ready, willing and able to take his Party right over the cliff in lockstep with the Kennedy-Kerry-Boxer-Pelosi wing of the Party. Hillary Clinton, eyeing the 2008 race, isn't being as precipitous.
