Another Republican for Sanity

Russ Feingold to the contrary notwithstanding, it’s pretty frustrating to be a Democrat (as I am) these days. How come it’s Republicans like this one that are talking common sense about Iraq? Where is any kind of moral leadership in my own party? With 57% (and rising) of the country now thinking that invading Iraq was a really bad idea, you don’t even need courage to take a stand. Come on, folks, we’re waiting for you to claim what the majority already has figured out. (Or, as Jim Wallis quotes in God’s Politics, it might be that “we [emphasis added] are the ones we have been waiting for.” Not that I want to run for office, but I need to do more to light a fire under our so-called leaders.)
