A Democrat For democrats

As if in response to my post about Iran the other day, there's a fairly decent article in this Sunday's Parade magazine written by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. The Clinton appointee emphasizes the importance of democracy to peace, properity and stability. She writes, "While the United States cannot determine the outcome of every confrontation, our preference for democrats over dictators should never be in doubt."
Remember that it was Albright who called the United States, "the indispensable nation." Contrast that with President Obama's response to whether he believed in American exceptionalism, "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism”. (In other words, "no"). An example of how badly the Democrats have continued to degenerate over the past decade.
