My Democratic friends are not only ecstatic about Tom DeLay’s fall, they are certain it presages the fall of the Evil Empire.
They’re convinced a Democratic “tidal wave” is about to engulf Washington and restore our party to its rightful majority in Congress.
I’m afraid they’re wrong. Three reasons:
1. Voters don’t believe Democratic politicians are any less corrupt than Republican politicians.
2. As I’ve said before, my party has an Achilles heel on protecting America against terrorists. Every day I wake up in fear that Howard Dean will start screaming that Saddam Hussein isn’t getting a fair trial.
3. Democrats – unlike the Republicans in 1980 and 1994 – don’t have a clear message for change.
“Had enough?” is sometimes enough to win. But not this year.
