Quick question

What does it say about the spine of the Democratic Party that:

(1) An overwhelming majority of Americans oppose President Bush's surge plan;

(2) President Bush's popularity is hovering at 28%, somewhere between Nixon at the nadir of Watergate and Hitler circa 1945;

(3) The Democrats were just swept into power in both chambers of Congress; and yet

(4) The only legislative plan for Iraq is a nonbinding resolution that carries no legal force, and arguably will accomplish exactly what the reactionary supporters of the Iraq War say it will accomplish, namely, demonstrate America is deeply divided over the war and has no clue what to do?

Yeah, they've had almost four weeks to fix everything....

Of course, in that time nine Repulican senators have come out against the escalation. This will no doubt detract from a purely partisan victory and might even let congress do something when this plan doesn't work....
