Neocons Are Down But Might Not Be Out

As long as Bush is in the White House the neocons will have a say. But certainly that movement has been discredited. The problem is they might try and wag the dog. The problem is they are desperate and control the armed forces. That could lead to a lot of mischief:
The political cost of the war in Iraq has already been high: President Bush's approval ratings have plummeted as opposition to the conflict has grown, and Republicans lost their majorities in the House and Senate when war-weary voters sent them home last November.

The war has also dealt a serious blow to an entire political philosophy: neoconservatism.
