IRAQPUNDIT: “Speak up, Democrats!”

Doesn’t it behoove the Democrats to correct the claim that their ascension to power is good news for the enemies of the U.S.? . . . Democrats don’t have a party position on what to do in Iraq. But surely they have a party position on whether they want to be embraced by the likes of Al Qaeda and Iran. Don’t they? Speak up, Democrats, or Al Qaeda and the Iranian mullahs will find your silence only too eloquent.

Ann Althouse says something similar.

UPDATE: Martin Peretz: “Friday, according to an article by John Hemming from Reuters, Khameini that the defeat of the Republicans on Tuesday was a victory for Iran Let’s hope that the Democrats don’t make it so. One way to prevent this from seeming to be objectively true would be to have Nancy Pelosi end her ugly and personal vendetta against Jane Harman as the chair of the House Intelligene Committee. But, let’s face it, it will take more than that. Much more.”
