    The Dems do not have a compelling leader to reconcile all factions. The most interesting brewing rift is the one between Obama and Hilary. The First Black President trumps the First Woman One (especially when Hilary was already part of a The Two-Fer).

    two words: Iraq War.

    that trumps all those half baked historical comparisons.

    The country is sick of this war and they are pissed at Bush and his party for lying us into it.

    There is not a republican in the running that has not been captured in a photo op with Dubya and I guarantee that those photos will be featured in losts of ads. The potential republican party candidate has to work like hell to distance himself from Bush and this terrible war, but if the candidate is too vocal in his criticism, he ends up damaging the congressional reelection campaigns of all those republican sheep who blindly followed their president into the ditch.

    Good take. :eusa_clap: At the same time, the GOP has a problem with philandering husbands, except for the Mormon. :eusa_angel:

    From the very beginning, I cannot recall libs saying or doing ANYTHING that leads me to believe that they have ever been in favor of victory in Iraq.

    All I have ever heard is whining that this is an "unjust war" or that "Bush lied and people died" or that "we cannot win".

    It's almost as if because they disagreed with the premise of the war, they have decided that DEFEAT is their preferred outcome. I guess that's why they have never offered a plan for victory themselves.

    Here is analysis that reflects what I think 'the public' gets, that the politicians seem incapable of:

    you may be swayed by editorial rants such as this, but I don't see any evidence that "the public" is as gullible.

    I doubt you truly see me as gullible. And the public from all recent polls are having major problems with how the Democrats are handling Iraq. As I've said nearly since November, the politicians have misinterpreted the message from the voters.
