Because compromise has worked so well so far. You cannot compromise on pulling out of Iraq. It is either something you do or do not do. What is the compromise between a pull out and a surge?

Yeah compromise is a part of the government, but a compromise requires two clearly stated and reasoned positions. If we walk in already 'compromised' then what good is negotion; if the Dems we put up are DLC stooges that are seemingly pro war (see Ford) then where rests the compromise?

If the Democrats make a clear and strong position against the war (with over 60% of Americans on their side) then what the hell do they have to lose?
