Dick Gephardt and Joe Lieberman are the only Democrats
who voted to authorize the war with Iraq and for the $87 billion
military and reconstruction (sic) package. The votes have cost Gephardt
in dovish Iowa so at least local GOPers can reward him for doing the
right thing – this once. Democrats apparently don’t appreciate that
he’s the most competitive in the general election, so loyal Republicans
who support him now won’t have played a role in setting up a tougher
race for the President in November.
