PM Question: Only 6 D’s Vote For Troop Pullout

Issue: Senate rejects U.S. troop pullout in Iraq: Only supporters are Kerry, Feingold, Boxer, Byrd, Harkin, Kennedy/Associated Press

More Info: The vote was 93-6 to shelve the proposal, which would have allowed "only forces that are critical to completing the mission of standing up Iraqi security forces" to remain in 2007.

DFO: So, if Kerry runs again, he can say that he voted against the continued massive troop presence in Iraq (before he eventually votes for it). Are the Demo senators listening to their divided constituency? Did the recent killing of Zarqawi undermine the Senate Demo insurgency?

Question: Can someone tell me why most Senate Dems are aboard with continued troop presence when they been bashing the Bush administration for years? Isn't this the time for the D's to take a principled stand against the war? Or are they still trying to have it both ways?
