« Spring on the Metolius | Main | Salem World Beat Festival ’06: hot! »

Democrats have never been united. Even Will Rogers quipped about that. I never claimed to like the segregationist Dems of the South and guys like Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman can gladly go.

But let's not forget that a majority of Dems voted against invading Iraq. Sometimes I'm underwhelmed; I'm not a party animal, but there is much the majority of them defend that I strongly approve of.

The vote in the Senate was a sham as it never had a chance of passing, even if every Dem voted to withdraw our troops. So why is that preferable to the outcome we got?

Give them a majority and see how unified they'll act then.
