Cut and Run Senate Proposal Defeated
The Senate defense experts who voted for it were the usual suspects: Kerry, Kennedy, Boxer, Feingold, Byrd and Harkin. Sen. Rockefeller (D-WV) didn't vote.
Mitch McConnel (R-KY) actually brought up the legislation he based on Kerry's proposal for a bill.
Speaker Hastert expects a vote after debate in the House tomorrow on a contra-positive proposal.
The funny thing is I don't think the Democrats know how much the things they are saying in the debate are hurting them. The complete collapse of even a face saving minority core in favor of bugging out of Iraq is an embarrassment as well.
