Reader comment on item: Impact of US elections in Mideast

On the surface for the immediate future, it does look like not much will change. The undercurrents in the mid to long term range to me look far different. Face it, a not small slice of the Democrat party is anti-American, not just pro-peace or against this war--this is why there was such glee at the chance to nail the one true pro-War Dem dissenter, Lieberman.

The Michael Moore/Maxine Waters/John Kerry wing will gain in influence as a result of this election and will blunt even the mildest Dem attempt to once again become the Party of Truman and Roosevelt, a Party with the stomach and backbone to both put its anti-American wing in its place and "talk softly but carry a big stick" in foreign policy.

Thus, the US will resemble more and more the accomodationist France and Germany making concession after concession to the terrorists. Please, I ask in blunt terms, consider which Party is the real friend of Israel.
