Listening to "Meet the Press" this morning -- Southern Republicans turning against tax cuts, everyone acknowledging our almost Biblical obligation to the poor -- it strikes me that the last four years for America have been bracketed by a one-two punch. Bin Laden's blow spun us to the right, now Katrina's roundhouse is snapping our heads to the left. In both cases, it was a correction we needed, though a terrible way to get it.
Are we going straight ahead yet?
