"As a Democrat, you don't want anything nice to happen to the Republicans, and you don't want them to have progress," Soderberg observed, before quickly adding, "But as an American, you hope good things would happen."

However, Soderberg quickly undermined her own caveat, noting, "It's scary for Democrats, I have to say."

After noting that the U.S.'s remarkable foreign policy success followed the toppling of one of the three members of the axis of evil, Soderberg suggested again that the more success America has in defeating global terrorism, the worse it is for her party.

"Well, there's still Iran and North Korea, don't forget. There's still hope for the rest of us. ... There's always hope that this might not work."

Every time someone asks, "Can the Democrats sink any lower?" we are shown in disgusting terms that the answer is yes. Here we have, not principled opposition to war or expression of loyal opposition, but the hope that evil regimes that are hostile to America and their own neighbors succeed in their struggle, so that it will help the Democratic Party politically. Democrats are rooting for the psychotic, criminal regime of North Korea and the fascist mullahs of Iran, both of whom have or are seeking nuclear weapons. This is not the mad, raving accusation of unthinking, partisan Republicans but a public statement from a senior Democratic operative.

If this isn't treason against one's country, could someone please explain what is?

And if there are any liberals in this country who are still loyal Americans, would you please leave the Democratic Party and establish your own so that liberal voters have a palatable choice besides a pack of cynical traitors?
