The Democrats tried to distract from the substance of President Bush’s speech by planting Cindy Sheehan in the House chamber tonight–she was reportedly the guest of a Democrat Congresswoman–but Justice Samuel Alito’s presence in the chamber was much more significant.

On foreign policy, President Bush made the same points he’s made before, and made well.
