Democracy in Tbilisi

Saakashvili’s spin isn’t true—Georgia isn’t really a democracy. To recover from the 2008 war, it must adopt liberal reforms and include all Georgians in the political process.

Liberal Democrats and Dick Cheney have found common cause: blasting Barack Obama. The Left needs to leave the president alone.

Courting Kiev

Ukraine’s new president isn’t anti-Western. Obama’s low-key approach toward Kiev is our best chance of keeping him that way.

East of Europe

Ukraine’s election results aren’t a repudiation of the West. Kiev will still pursue the middle course it always has, courting both Europe and Russia.
