Bristling Democrats

I had to smile at the CNN headline "Democrats bristle at Bush's push to confirm Bolton". As I have noted, this move is to be expected, the Democrats are wise to resist it, and it is ultimately likely to be a non-starter. Nonetheless, I have to applaud President Bush for his "spunk" in tweaking the noses of the Democrats, a lot of whom are arrogant and full of themselves. Bush will be humbled soon enough. I just wish the Democrats would show a little more humility while they do that humbling.

If the Democrats want to truly govern rather than merely being onstructionist to the Neoconservative agenda, they need to stop "bristling." They need to rise up above the fray and dare to lead rather than merely react.
