Fighting the 10,000

Fine, don't listen to me. Listen to him:
Here is an ironic finding I brought back from Iraq. While U.S. public opinion polls show serious declines in support for the war and increasing pessimism about how it will end, polls conducted by Iraqis for Iraqi universities show increasing optimism. Two-thirds say they are better off than they were under Saddam, and a resounding 82% are confident their lives in Iraq will be better a year from now than they are today. What a colossal mistake it would be for America's bipartisan political leadership to choose this moment in history to lose its will and, in the famous phrase, to seize defeat from the jaws of the coming victory.
First John McCain, now Joe Lieberman. I'm not sure the pigheaded section of the peanut gallery has any heroes left.
eMail this entry!
Joe Lieberman was the only Democrat I would have voted for in the 2004 election. So naturally he didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning the primary.
Liberman for the Democratic nominee for president,McCain for the Republican nominee. I would have had a very hard time deciding which one to vote for. Same thing in the 2008 election and again neither will have a change for a nomination
In that contest, I'd vote Democrat in a heartbeat. I haven't forgotten the McCain / Feingold "Free Speech Reform" Act.
