Gordon Smith, staring electoral defeat in 2008 in the face, starts making sense on Iraq. It goes to show that you can’t really count on “sensible Republicans” to save the country. Instead, when progressive forces look strong enough to seriously threaten GOP politicians they’ll start acting more sensibly. Which is certainly a good thing, but simply shows the need to keep pressing the attack as hard as possible. Meanwhile, it’d be nice if more Democrats could bring themselves to at least meet the minimal Gordon Smith standard of political and substantive wisdom.
