This is another reason why I wouldn't want to be a Democrat

I was reading this article and found myself shaking my head in disbelief. It's almost like she's really a Republican out to make sure the Democrats look stupid. I mean who says stuff like this in public?:

"[A]s a Democrat, you don't want anything nice to happen to the Republicans, and you don't want them to have progress."

And bless his heart, Jon Stewart was trying to guide her to redemption, but she just couldn't grasp at it:

[...]Mr. Stewart replied, "Do you think that the people of Lebanon would have had the courage of their conviction, having not seen -- not only the invasion but the election which followed [in Iraq]? It's almost as though that the Iraqi election has emboldened this crazy -- something's going on over there. I'm smelling something."[...]

Mrs. Soderberg, however, couldn't be deterred from her rank partisanship. Here's one of her more odious comments: "Well, there's still Iran and North Korea, don't forget. There's still hope for the rest of us ... There's always hope that this might not work."

Okay, I am sure she was trying to be funny...except the only problem is, you know she actually means it. It's one thing to think like that...but a whole different thing to admit it on television. How, oh how, are the Democrats going to get anywhere with people like that being their mouthpieces?
