Nancy Soderberg revealed her unfortunate partisan bias on Jon Stewart's "Daily Show"

Former Clinton aide Nancy Soderberg, was promoting her new book, "The Superpower Myth: The Use and Misuse of American Might" on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart. However, she revealed on the show that she hopes America's efforts in the Middle East are undermined and become a failure. Wishing failure for American foreign policy while thousands of our troops are in harm's way is a shameless way to promote a book, an agenda and partisan politics.

The following are Ms. Soderberg's comments in response to Jon Stewart's raising of the issue that President Bush's strategies might be working...

The Middle East Peace Process:
"They may have a chance to do a historic deal with the Palestinians and Israelis. These guys could pull of a whole series of Nobel Peace Prizes. It may well work. It's scary for Democrats, I have to say."

Bush's legacy:
"There's still Iran and North Korea, don't forget. There's still hope for the rest of us."

Bush administration's success in the Middle East:
"There's always hope this might not work."

It's regrettable that a former American official with foreign policy experience can be so vocal about wishing against a current administration's efforts to bring peace and democracy in the Middle East. What is her benchmark for a Bush administration failure in the Middle East, more dead American soldiers? More chaos in Iraq, Lebanon and Israel? Nancy Soderberg's partisan bias is clouding her judgment on what's best for the Middle East and for our country.
