    Ugly, but probably fair analysis. Lots of links:

    I think Tigerhawk was onto something, that Schumer said. Iraq is lose/lose for dems, they want it 'gone' by 2008.

    That one's easy.

    The Dems REQUIRE failure in Iraq; otherwise, all their accusations and rhetoric will be seen for the BS they are, and they'll lose even more of whatever's left of their credibility.

    That's the saddest part, politics & power. As selfish as that. I wish I didn't agree with that, but I see no alternative conclusion.

    Illogical conclusion. They see it as BUSH and the Republicans losing, not the country. Notice how most libs already call it Bush's War or "our" war, but never "the" war?

    Completely lacking foresight, they see political victory here at home as more important than any victory in the Middle East. They don't care what it does to this Nation so long as they can try and force thier will on the people of the US.
