A problem from hell

(With not very abject apologies to Samantha Power.) There's a march in DC this Sunday, to press the government to get international troops in to stop the genocide in Darfur.

This shouldn't be, and I think is not, a partisan issue at all. When Clinton failed to step into Rwanda, it was not just a shame for the Democratic party, but for America. And as near as I can tell, the Bush administration is in the throes of the same kind of non-partisan lassitude, born not of ideology but of inertia.

If you can be there, great. If not, MoveOn is sponsoring a virtual march. You can click on through and sign their petition.
