The Senate Democrats' courageous effort to enact a non-binding resolution opposing Bush's plans to escalate his Iraq blunder apparently failed.
Lets see, the American public, by all accounts, swept the Republicans out of power because of their disgust with the Republican's war. So Bush, taking his cue from Sen. McCain, actually sends more troops to die for no good reason. And the Democrats can't even muster up the gumption to do everything in their power to get us out of this mess. Even though it would be smart politics and clearly in the best interests of our nation.
