Party chairman notes little progress to stop military involvement--The high hurdles faced by congressional Democrats in their efforts to end the Iraq war make electing a Democratic president in 2008 the best way to finish the conflict, Democratic party chairman Howard Dean said Saturday.mcjoan comments on Kos:
A former presidential candidate himself, Dean contrasted the field of Democratic and Republican candidates who participated in separate party debates earlier this week, saying only Democrats would end the war.
Democrats also seek to shift troops from Iraq to Afghanistan, restore damaged relationships with other countries and provide the military with “the resources they need,” Dean said.
Obviously there isn't just "one way" to end the war; Congressional leaders could follow the Feingold-Reid framework and end this next spring. But good for Dean for hearing what the people are saying. As usual, he gets it.
