Pelosi's Perils

Kimberly Strassel lays out the damage that the anti-war left is doing to Nancy Pelosi's leadership of the House. Their zealotry is endangering the Democratic majority, and with good reason.

It seems only fair that a party that swept to power by promising immediate out-of-Iraq results to its left and moderation to its moderates is now being hoist on its own petard.

The bottom line is that sensible Democrats understand that normal Americans aren't willing to accept nothing but surrender and defeat. That's why, for example, so many of the talking points give lip serving to "winning" even as proposals are offered that would achieve exactly the opposite.
