Senate Rejects Iraq Pullout

You can read the news reports and get more information that I'd be able to give you. I have a couple of observations, though.
  • It wasn't close. 93-6 was the vote, with the six being Kerry, Kennedy, Boxer, Feingold, Byrd and Harkin. Kerry and Feingold are the only two with presidential aspirations, firmly courting the irrational left.
  • Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, spoke up:

    "This is a war that is a grotesque mistake," countered House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California. She called for a fresh strategy — "one that will make us safer, strengthen our military, and restore our reputation in the world."

    It'll be a cold day in San Francisco before Ms. Pelosi articulates such a strategy.
  • "Kerry called the vote "fictitious" and promised further debate next week on the issue."

    Fictitious? Well, he would know. Just like Christmas in Cambodia and the Magic Hat. And the Boston Marathon. And the Winter Soldier investigation.
