The bidding goes:

W: 2 Spades
N: Pass
E: 3 Spades
S: Double
W: Pass
N: 4 Diamonds
E: Pass

What do I bid now?
5D. When opponents preempt, you have to play partner for something. Sometimes he will not, and you will go several down, but that's why people preempt.

I would have bid 4H with partner's hand. Doubler is more likely to have hearts than anything else, and if we are playing at the 4-level, might as well have a shot at the game bonus.
