It's Not Their Fault

I know we've been tough on the Democrats in Congress for not ending the Iraq war and not standing up to the President.

Let today's actions in the Senate be proof that the Democrats ARE in fact doing what they can to end the war and stand up to the President.

Twice today, all Democrats (excluding Lieberman of course) voted to restore habeas corpus to detainees and to require troops to be home for the same amount of time as they are deployed, both against what the Bush administration wants.

All Democrats and six Republicans...a good majority, 56.

They just don't have the votes. You want change, you need to elect more Senators who want change. 50 votes don't cut in the Senate.
