Is it too early to start speculating on political campaigns? Probably, but that never stopped me. So--how are the potential Democratic Presidential candidates going to play Iraq? Most voted for the resolution and when the chips are down continue to vote not to cut and run. Rhetorically, of course, they seem to be taking the defense that I am dumber than Bush and Rove and was tricked into supporting the war.
Given that the Democratic primary system favors the Democratic moonbats, just how are "mainstream" Democrats (is there such a thing?) going to navigate this Scylla and Charybdis? And, of course, if the situation in the Middle East continues to improve, as I believe it will, how are the Dems going to switch sides? They can take Rep. Adam Smith's (D, WA) comments which appeared in my morning fishwrap: "the situation isnt as bad as I thought, but I am still distressed that Bush lied...." Smith is a Seattle area Democrat, so take it for what it is worth (link not available).
