What passes as "antiwar"

I had a lot to say about the supposed "antiwar" Obama during the campaign. In an article today from AP, we find out what "antiwar" means when it comes to Congress:
"Before I support any more troops to Afghanistan, I want to see a strategy that includes an exit plan," said Rep. Jim McGovern, a Massachusetts liberal who at one point wanted to cut off money for the Iraq war.

Added Wisconsin Democrat Sen. Russ Feingold, another fierce war opponent: "The idea of putting the troops in without having more clarity at least gives me pause."
"Fierce war opponent"? And all it takes to change their "opposition" is a little "clarity" or an "exit plan"?

And these are some of the best of the Democrats.
