What is wrong with the democrats? Where are their spines? At least Feingold, Sanders and Byrd have some real courage.

Feingold and two other war critics, Sens. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., opposed the $696 billion bill which the Senate overwhelmingly approved and sent to President Bush. Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., voted for the bill.

Feingold said his vote was consistent with his opposition to the war in Iraq.

He said the bill “does nothing to end the president’s misguided, open-ended Iraq policy, which has over-burdened our military, weakened our national security, diminished our international credibility, and cost the lives of thousands of brave American soldiers.”
