The Democrats will be trying to right their wrongs next week. Reid is introducing new legislation to end the war. The public outcry over their wimpout, along with the fact that now Republican and military family support for the war is collapsing, is about to bear fruit. The dreaded "you're not supporting the troops" is finally coming to an end as Bush's bully-boy club.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
