You would think with all the anti-war votes up for grabs that the democratic senators would be bending over backwards to lead the way to bring the iraq fubar to a rapid close...but that's not what's happening. This is a prime example of why any democratic senator is not ready for the job of president because the president needs to LEAD.
Dennis Kucinich from the House of Representatives is LEADing the way out of iraq. The democratic senators should realize that's what the people want...but that's not what the people who put money into their campaigns want. If they had any sense they would introduce legislation into the senate to get out of iraq and make the republicans pull a filibuster...they will eventually stop the filibuster and we will get to vote on it. Put it on the table every day....but no, none of the democratic senators running for president will lead the way. Let us recap who these (in)active senators are: Obama, Clinton, Dodd, Biden...none of these senators has a clue on leading the way out of iraq to peace...but Dennis Kucinich, a House Represenative, sure does lead and know the right path to start. Dennis Kucinich has consistently voted against this war...and will pull out ALL the troops, NOT leaving the 5k+contractors there as an empire such as Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, or Chris Dodd who are NOT leading the way out would have it.
I'm ashamed of the senate...they are supposed to be the leaders with the bigger overall view but the senate has become shortsided and unable to grasp what is truly in the best interest of the country. They just don't get it...the only thing the senators do get is the checks to help their campaigns. If the democratic senate caves to more war then it will show again that they are not fit to lead except in the race to the bank.
