WASHINGTON (AP) - House Democratic leaders are intent on
sidetracking bipartisan attempts to change course in Iraq at least until fall,
officials said Tuesday, rather than allow nervous Republicans to vote for
legislation that lacks a troop withdrawal deadline.
Several lawmakers and
aides said the goal was to deny members of the GOP rank and file a chance to
proclaim their independence from President Bush by voting for a limited measure
- after months of backing his policy in an increasingly unpopular war.
have long shown the war to be unpopular, and a survey released during the day by
the Democracy Corps, which advises Democrats, reported that 61 percent of those
polled want their lawmaker to begin requiring a reduction of troops. (link)

Legisltation by poll. It's a remarkable conceitconcept. Maybe one day we'll get some politcians that will legislate for the good of the people and not for the votes of the people (D or R). Maybe I'm being a little cynical, but you'd think that one day someone in Washington would stand up against poll-watching and get to actually doing their job.

We really need a true conservative party in this country. Something the Republicans used to know a little about.
