23. She voted for the IWR because she had presidential ambitions and had to appear "tough".
Kerry, Edwards and Dodd did the same thing. Wellstone, Feingold, Kennedy and Boxer voted against it and none of them apparently had presidential ambitions.

I doubt that any who voted against it believe that the war it totally on Bush or they would have just said WTF and voted for it like Clinton, Kerry, Edwards and Dodd.
