9. My thinking too. The smart move is to confront moderate and swing state Republicans.
They won't like having to answer to the increasing horde of anti-Iraq war constituents. If enough Rs can be persuaded, getting the Dem leadership to get our own to toe the line is a cakewalk.

I appreciate her intentions, but she has a lot to learn about how things get accomplished.
