Eliminating bin Laden
Fox News reports that Democrats know how to get the job done:
Congressional Democrats promise to "eliminate" Osama bin Laden and ensure a
"responsible redeployment of U.S. forces" from Iraq in 2006 in an

"We're uniting behind a national security agenda that is tough and smart and
will provide the real security George Bush has promised but failed to
deliver," Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said in remarks
prepared for delivery Wednesday.

Bayh in New Hampshire
Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) was recently in New Hampshire telling the Granite
State Democrats what they wanted to hear, according to the

it that way," said Bayh. His words were greeted with a standing ovation from

Reuters is reporting that the United States has put new roadblocks in
the way of Russia’s joining the World Trade Organization. The relationship
between the U.S. and Russia has cooled over their position with helping Iran
achieve nuclear capability. Russia also teamed up with China in weakening
the U.N.’s response to Iran:

Kremlin meeting with Russian business leaders.
