Cut and Run Senate Proposal Defeated

The Senate debated and then voted on John Kerry's proposal to withdraw most of the American Troops from Iraq by year's end. The vote was 93-6 against pulling out the troops. Whew, that was close.

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.
