23. In what way is Dean "against" the war in Iraq?
He correctly criticizes Congress (and his fellow candidates) for voting blindly for war, but simultaneously shrugs his shoulders with the cautious "this sucks, but we're stuck" position.

That's really a convenient position to hold - and pretty useless for solving our Iraq problem.

When Dean articulates something approaching a meaningful position on Iraq, we may be able to say he's "against" the war. For now, despite his bluster, he's offering no direction other than grimacing at the status quo.

That's not enough. We need leaders who will lead us out of the quagmire.
