44. So many forget
at the time of that vote 70% of Americans wanted inspectors in to stop Bush's rush to war. Sometimes on DU I think that I was the only one listening and reading articles back then that had Bush wanting our troops in Iraq as early as Nov '02. I have never held that vote against anyone and I am anti-war, but at the time it was the only thing that many thought would stop the idiot in chief.

You know this thing about the IWR vote is not one of my reasons for supporting Obama, my reason for supporting Obama is because I want change not only in this country but in the Democratic party, that change started in '04 and I just hope we really make it happen this time around.
