A Potential Non-Partisan Rope-A-Dope
UAE seems to be a true ally and would be instrumental in dealing with Iran. Cozying up with them seems like a good idea to me.
Opponents of the deal are looking awefully bad to me. Nationalist, Racist, and reactionary.
If many of the opponents are also opponents of Social Security and Healthcare reform, this could help the Administration stack the deck in favor of its policies after '06.
The strawman that private accounts would somehow prevent the US from ever implementing a national healthcare system should be easy to knock down. Getting rid of reactionary hacks might make the agenda more tenable.
