The Democrats' Dilemma

This one has a circuitous thread, but is worth following:

Roger L. Simon has a piece pertaining to a quandary liberals find themselves in relative to supporting or opposing the War on Terror.

He cites a piece by Jonah Goldberg of NRO thrashing Kevin Drum's arguments regarding the War on Terror. According to Simon the post is:

about Peter Beinart piece [in the New Republic] urging liberals to take a harder line on Islamofascism in the manner many did on Communism back in the forties and fifties. Drum seems to have been peeved by Beinart's suggestion, making the risible statement that Peter ought first to prove that Islamic totalitarianism was "an overwhelming danger to the security of the United States." (Well, I guess we can't expect Kevin to lead the charge hereabouts for Theo Van Gogh - poor guy was Dutch.)
The Democrats have a serious problem. If they continue to have this kind of division over the War on Terror, they may not see a majority in Congress or a Presidency for decades.
