Tom Lantos Clears His Throat
Precisely when events in the Middle East are looking up, Tom Lantos suggests we breakout the democracy banners. Although Tom was outspoken in voting for the Iraq War Resolution and took his share of grief from the appeasement lobby on the Peninsula, his voice got very muted when the effort was floundering. A check of the congressman's website shows the issues that interest him and it would appear that democracy in the Middle East couldn't break into his top 16 list. Leadership takes place when the possiblities aren't so bright Tom. Your follower-ship, however, is appreciated. Better late than never.
