Democrats Not Sure What They Believe

While the President has said we must finish the job in Iraq of standing up a freely elected government and a military capable of securing the country, the Democrats aren't so sure.

Howard Dean said today, “The idea that the United States is going to win the war in Iraq is just plain wrong.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): "We Should Follow The Lead Of Congressman John Murtha ... I'm Endorsing What Mr. Murtha Is Saying ... I Believe That A Majority Of Our Caucus Clearly Supports Mr. Murtha ... And Let's Be Clear About What It Is Mr. Murtha Said, 'Yes, Let's Bring The Troops Home.'"

Sen. Hillary Clinton: "[I] Reject A Rigid Timetable That The Terrorists Can Exploit, And I Reject An Open Timetable That Has No Ending Attached To It."

Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-CT): "I Have Just Returned From My Fourth Trip To Iraq In The Past 17 Months And Can Report Real Progress There. ... Progress Is Visible And Practical."

In an attempt to clear up the confustion, DCCC Chair Rahm Emanuel (D-IL): "At The Right Time, We Will Have A Position [On Iraq]."
