....Of course the war in Iraq will be a major mid-term election issue. So will the Medicare prescription drug benefit, says The Washington Times. But which party will feel the heat?

"Opinion polls in support of the benefit are off the chart. And apparently Democratic strategists are telling candidates to cool their anti-benefit rhetoric. Republican congressmen are planning to run on the issue, and Democratic Party congressional challengers are getting nervous about their aggressive negative stand fed to them to by their party's spinmeisters. And we wouldn't be surprised if Democratic Party challengers will have wished they had not bought into their party's propaganda on this point."
