Andrew Sullivan thinks that conservatives should vote for the Democrats this time - so the Dems are forced to take responsibility for the WoT. His reasoning reminds me of the three reasons John Adams gave for asking Jefferson to write the Declaration of Independence. Strangely, all of them seem applicable to the current situation.

Reason first: You are a Virginian (replace with a Democrat) and a Virginian ought to appear at the head of this business. (This is very similar to his argument)
Reason second: I am obnoxious, suspected and unpopular. You are very much otherwise. (Deservedly, or otherwise, Bush is not trusted by the world. Kerry wins 86% in polls outside the US)
Reason third: You can write ten times better than I can. (Kerry simply IS a better diplomat than Bush)

Hmmm.... the timeless wisdom of the Founders!
