Triumph of the Pants-Wetters

From today’s NYT: Democrats Say Leaving Iraq May Take Years:

Even as they call for an end to the war and pledge to bring the troops home, the Democratic presidential candidates are setting out positions that could leave the United States engaged in Iraq for years.

From today’s LAT: Hillary: the right’s choice?:

Is hell freezing over? One might think so after reading recent comments from editors at National Review and the Weekly Standard, America’s leading conservative magazines. Over the last 15 years, both magazines seldom have passed up an opportunity to excoriate Hillary Rodham Clinton as some kind of crypto-communist.

No more. Today, Sen. Clinton is rapidly becoming not merely acceptable to many right-wingers but possibly even their candidate of choice.

Both of which resonate with an NPR Weekend Edition Sunday item on disaffected Republicans.

Likelihood any of this will cause all the “defeatocrat” blather to abate an iota: nil.
