Well at least they finally admit that we aren't likely to see any serious alternatives. Far be it from me to give you Dems any advice, but this "plan" of yours always looks good in the Spring. Your big problem is that the elections are in the Fall.
It was thus curiously refreshing to hear a Democrat admit what everyone knows: the Dems have no policy and see no reason to offer one. The particular context was the war in Iraq. Interviewing Rosen on this evening's Hardball, Chris Matthews asserted: "I don't think your party [your party?] has a policy."
Acknowledged Rosen: "It doesn't have a policy. It doesn't need to have a policy. What's the point of a Democratic policy?"
Going to break, a palpably shocked Matthews exclaimed: "I can't believe you said that!"
