Never Enough Backbone Department

Too many pundits are taking the failure of the Democratic Party in last week's election as a green-light for Bush to continue his policies, especially regarding Iraq and the War On Terrorism. In fact, the few politicians--mostly Democrat--who stood up against the President and voted against war actually got re-elected by handsome margins. It is painfully clear, then, that there is no green-light, and that if more politicians had the courage to say no to war, Bush would be standing on shakier ground.

It's not too late to declare that Bush does not act on behalf of the majority of Americans. To that end, I strongly urge you to visit Not In Our Name, a site that includes a petition against Bush's war policy. If you have a backbone, you can stand against war.
