The Democratic party won the last election on the basis of promising to put an end to the war in Iraq. Joe Lieberman and his fellow travellers in the Senate refuse to even ALLOW a debate on the issue of Iraq, much less put substantive legislation in place to bring the war to an end.
And the Democratic Senators roll?
Forget the party base- they're stiffing the VOTERS here.
Put aside the moral implications for a second. What in the name of heaven are the leading Democratic Senators that are running for the office of the presidency thinking? What if Hillary or Obama win the nomination and beat the Republican candidate in the general, assuming the office of the president of the United States in 2009?
Do they realize the political implications of being left "holding the bag" on George W. Bush's war?
I hate to couch it in those terms but those seem to be the only terms that really matter to those guys. The politics of not ending the Iraq war right now just plain suck.
