Democrats speak...and then act

Two stories in today's news pretty much encapsulate the position of the Democrats on Iraq. On the one hand, there are debates on relatively meaningless resolutions going on right now in both the Senate and the House, with various Democrats speaking about some kind of withdrawal (almost always to occur sometime in the future). On the other hand, we have action, specifically a vote to authorize money for the war. And when it came to voting $66 billion more for that purpose, the Senate voted 98-1 in favor (the one was Arlen Specter and I'm not sure what he didn't like but it wasn't the money for war).
