He backed the Iraq war and continued to back it and President Bush, even as the conflict has grown steadily worse and no light has appeared at the end of the tunnel.

He's Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and now he's on the outside, looking in.

In a stunning defeat, Lieberman lost Tuesday's Democratic primary to newcomer Ned Lamont, who made the conflict, and Lieberman's support for it, the centerpiece of his anti-war campaign.

The upset is a warning that more Americans are fed up with the Bush administration's handling of Iraq and want the war ended, a sentiment reflected in a new poll that shows 60 percent of Americans believe the war was a mistake.

They understand what the White House doesn't, or refuses to admit:

The president's definition of victory -- a stable, united Iraq with a strong government and armed forces that can guarantee security -- is probably impossible to achieve, no matter how long the U.S. stays.
