America is in for four more years of conservative governance as a result of the Republican election sweep.
The world now knows that President George W. Bush has political support for his brand of hard-edged conservativism at home and his tough, unilateral foreign policy abroad.
Bush's lack of credibility in staging the Iraqi invasion and his willingness to alienate longtime allies apparently meant nothing to a majority of American voters.
The president views the outcome of the election as vindication of his policies. Now he can really get down to business.
With the same political party in control of the White House, the House, the Senate and the Supreme Court, there will be no way to block Bush's preemptive militancy. Who is going to stop him?..
