There's hope yet.

A great piece in the New York Times Magazine today by Michael Ignatieff about the need to promote (but not impose) democracy throughout the world. Taken with Peter Beinart's much discussed article about the need for the left to take terrorism seriously, it seems that American liberals are starting to fight back against the Michael Moores of the world and the obsession with domestic policy. Liberalism with a bit of grit. That, I can take.

In Canada, grit and liberal are supposed to be synonymous...

That may be Ciclouseau, but in reality, Liberals in Canada are more synonymous with corruption. I was referring, of course, the the small 'l' variety.
