60. Hey Zhade: Here's Rush Holt on Iraq-

As you may know, I voted against the Congressional resolution authorizing President Bush to use force against Iraq, primarily because there was no evidence of an Iraq connection to 9/11, because there was no evidence that Saddam posed an immediate threat to us with WMD, and because I believed the President's new-found enthusiasm for a "preemptive war" doctrine was both unconstitutional and dangerous. Further, if we did not know clearly why we were going to war in Iraq, how would we ever know when it was time to bring our solders home?

Sounds good to me.
