The New Republic's Peter Beinart talks about the good fight in the war on terror and why he thinks liberals need to lead it.
Mr. Stephenson's comment:
[The] New Republic editor's contention [is] that only liberals (he means the Scoop Jackson style, rather than the Gene McCarthy types such as me) can really fight the war on terror. I was the lst call in, and said I think that the conservatives can't see all of these issues from a systems standpoint, but see them in isolation, and that means they can't fight terrorism...
You can give a listen here.
And you can send some lovin' his way via the blog: W. David Stephenson is a new grandpa, too. Sending our love (and hope your laptop dries out after the toddler grandchild spilled drink on it. Yuck.)
