So the Democrats are in their last throes? They will simply have to drop the withdrawal timetable and the performance benchmarks from their Iraq/Afghanistan funding bill? The Democrats must not back-down, especially when a man with a horrific batting average is predicting that they will fail. That should only encourage them to fight harder.
But these are the Democrats. I can't expect a successful stand, unless all of them (minus Lieberman) are committed to the battle.
