The Non-Politics of Terri Schiavo

      Despite the hopes among some militant secularists, I don't think the Terri tragedy will any long term effects on party politics.

      With Ralph Nader and Jesse Jackson and the Liberals for Terri, we see that many people don't see this through the lens of party politics.  If the Democratic Party tries to peel off Republicans using Terri, it will lose votes among these lefty supporters of her.  Meanwhile, there's enough opposition in Republican ranks, and enough Democrats who voted for the Terri bill, to keep Republicans from using this for partisan advantage.

      Which is how it should be.  We desperately need better thinking on how to deal with such situations.  A sincerely bipartisan effort will be welcome.

      By the way, over at my other blog, I have a personal anecdote about Jesse Jackson.

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
