The Middle's not dead yet....

One of the great tragedies of the Democrat's inability to articulate any national platform other than "We hate Bush and Iraq is a quagmire" is that in chasing and polarizing their extreme Left base, they hurt their moderates in the upcoming Congressional elections and leave the Bush admin no reason to run to the middle, as Clinton did in '96. So it was refreshing to see the following in the Washington Post today...

Senators join forces to roll back parts of Patriot Act

This is a hopeful sign for moderates everywhere that the extremes don't completely control the national agenda, and that common sense still has some followers on The Hill.
