    I understand and respect those that differ with GW on Iraq. What I do not understand is that since we are now committed, that something like this is a good idea. If a Democrat should win in 2008, which is a likely scenario, I not only think the nonsense will stop, but they will in all likelihood increase the involvement, (note the last part of the quote regarding the Senate).

    The Dems are behaving in a very shortsighted fashion, even for their own political power accretion agenda. I doubt they would want a future Dem president's executive power to be so curtailed by a future GOP controlled Congress, which is what they are staging with this vote.

    It wouldn't be the first time Congress went on vacation without paying the troops!
