Democratic banality, Republican incompetency

At Slate, Fred Kaplan argues that the new Democratic national security plan, Real Security (which our own LGND examined here), "reeks of banality". Perhaps, but it's a start -- and starting is better than not starting at all. Besides, as Kaplan goes on to say, it's not as if Bush and the Republicans have a better alternative:

The real contest will begin when both parties nominate their candidates, at which point this document may or may not be a dead letter. For now, though, the Dems have hoisted a banner: real security vs. rhetorical security; tough and smart vs. tough and, well, not so smart. Let that debate begin.

Yes, let it. This is one Democrats can win.
