The New Republic’s Editor-in-Chief Martin Peretz on the Consequences of Democratic Victory in the House or Senate on Iraq, Iran, Israel and the United States

Thursday, August 3, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The transcript of today’s interview is here.  The audio is here.  Here’s the end of the conversation:

HH: Well, that’s okay. But in our limited time, but you’re very pro-Democratic Party. And if the Democrats triumphed, we just concluded what will happen. Doesn’t that make you an accomplice, ultimately, to a disastrous policy for Israel if they get what they want?

MP: Well, I…my whole…I’m not sure who I’m for in two and a half years. We don’t know who the candidates will be.

HH: Do you want the Democrats to win majorities in the House or the Senate, Martin Peretz?

MP: I’m…I’m appalled by some of the people who would become head of Congressional committees.

HH: Is that a no?

MP: Uh, but I’m also appalled by some of the shenanigans…

HH: But is that…I’ve got five seconds. Is that a no, Martin Peretz?

MP: It’s a cowardly refusal to answer.

HH: (laughing) Okay. We’ll carry it on, later. Martin Peretz, thanks.

Read the whole thing.  An honest Democrat who sees clearly what is happening.
