Krauthammer on Dean's Iowa Defeat

In a humorous but sad column aptly titled Paradise Lost, Charles Krauthammer is "bereft" over Dean's defeat. After talking about the dissappointed vegan student supporters of Dr. Dean, he adds:

"Sure, he was their hope. But he was mine too. Dean as Democratic nominee promised not just happiness but glory: a Republican landslide of biblical proportions. Big majority in the House. And so many coattailed new senators that Bush could have begun repopulating the Supreme Court with 42-year-old conservatives (like Miguel Estrada) who would serve forever."

But, we conservatives started to gloat too soon. As an example, he notes the National Review with the headline "Please Nominate This Man." So sad. As Krauthammer says, "The dream is gone."
