Sen. Schumer's Comment
In one of my February 1 posts, I said,
They (the Senate Democrats) want to have it both ways. Criticize Bush but keep him wholly responsible. The one thing they absolutely do not want is to take ownership of the war. The best outcome for the Democrats is if the Senate Republicans block the non-binding resolution.
Strangely enough, that's where Mitch McConnell seems to be taking the Republicans.
Yesterday, Sen. Charles Schumer (D - NY), commenting on the Republican Senators' success in blocking the debate, said: “Senator McConnell led his Republican troops off the cliff.”
