I think this call from Helen Thomas to the Democrat leadership is 100% correct:
Democrats Must Call For Pullout
Voters Will Punish Opposition For Not Opposing War
It’s time for the Democratic Party to take a courageous stand and call for the withdrawal of troops from the senseless war in Iraq.
Helen obviously cannot add (who has majority support), nor does she apparently understand the American will to tough it out. Nor does she appreciate that the military personnel are in no mood to quit right before we succeed. So I think Hillary and others should do what she says. Let them see the how the democrats are the party of quitters and defeatists.
The reps would pick up 3 senate seats next year if they did!
