- "It is time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge that he will be commander-in-chief for three more critical years, and that in matters of war we undermine Presidential credibility at our nation's peril."
- Simple: The Democrats should realize that George W. Bush will be the commander-in-chief for three more years.
