Obama-Jobs; Iraq-Blair; Dems Doom Foretold

Joblessness is still on the rise and the recovery is stagnant. Can Obama do anything about it? Is there a GOP solution? Is the real problem that the solutions were never big or bold enough to solve the crisis? And is flat the new up? Also, was Iraq worth it? Do supporters need to apologize, as Matt Miller does, for their support of the war? Tony Blair's new memoir says he has no regrets. And is it true that Democrats are doomed in November? (David Frum sits in for Tony Blankley, who is away.)
