Jonah Goldberg over at National Review Online discusses the idea being lightly discussed (and one I believe with which he does NOT agree) that perhaps it wouldn't be so bad to have a Democrat win in 2008 and be forced to deal with Islamofascism first-hand.
This is a gobsmackingly bad idea.
I recall a very strong socially conservative friend circa 1992 who was no fan of George HW Bush that it wouldn't be so bad if the Democrats won and then we could get a true Reagan conservative in in 1996.
Look what happened.
We are at far too serious of a point in a clash of civilizations to even consider, let alone be complicit in, handing the reins of government over the representative of a party that cannot be trusted with the security of the Republic.
