Democrats, the War and the Wariors
There is a good article in The Prospect on the how the Democrats in Congress are doing with regard to the electorate and their vote on the war funding supplemental. The answer is, pretty well. The article discusses a recent meeting John Tester had with some veterans in Montana. Rather than being on the spot and having to defend his vote, if anything he got support for it. On the whole he was well received and his position is more solid than it was before the vote.
Really, the Democrats need to realize that support for the war is restricted to a set of media, political and business elites. The general population is not interested in continuing this war. I say that the Democrats need to realize this, they are starting to, and the Democratic resistance to Bush is growing. It looks like it will continue to grow and to grow stronger.
