Juxtaposition of the day

Juxtaposition of the day: Bush vs. Dean

Bush says he would do it all over again, alone, if he had to.

The United States would wage war again, and alone if necessary, to ensure the long-term safety of the world, President George W Bush said in an interview published on Monday.

Howard Dean says the US can not "go it alone", apparently under any circumstances.

As Madeleine Albright once put it, we are the "indispensable power" for addressing so many of the challenges around the world. But we cannot lead the world by force, and we cannot go it alone. We must lead toward clearly articulated and shared goals and with the cooperation and respect of friends and allies.

Dean doesn't say, however, what he would do if it turns out that most of our "allies" have their heads buried in the sand.
