Oh The Burden

I accidently blundered into an article by Thomas Friedman this morning and I must say he has evidently found a new drug. One paragraph really jumps at you screaming clarity of vision and deep insight. That's all I have to say, the paragraph speaks for itself.

Because most Democrats have opposed the war from the start, and many Republicans no longer support the war per se, but only George Bush. The president has carried this war on his shoulders, and the more he's weakened politically by Katrina, the less he will be able to carry. Yes, Mr. Bush has said we'll do whatever it takes to finish the job in Iraq, but he said that before there was another huge job to do.

Emphasis mine.
