Check the nearest Republican for cold sweats.

This is something to see-- and welcome news. Maybe it's time for Dems to starting hitting the GOP harder on the war issue. After all, they had carte blanche for years in handling Afghanistan and Iraq, and the apparent result is a sharp rise in Muslim terrorists and record production of opium poppies. Oh, and failing to apprehend the 9/11 mastermind for almost six years now. All at the low, low cost of $500,000,000,000. Bargain.

This has to be a first. In its new poll, Fox News asked what may well be the ultimate in jingoistic, rally-around-the-flag questions — and the Democrats came out on top.

If there is an all-out war between the United States and various radical Muslim groups worldwide, who would you rather have in charge — Democrats or Republicans?
