Greg Sargent on the "the really important thing" Robert Byrd did (with video)

Greg Sargent:
Question o' the day: With the most prominent public officials set to offer paeans to Byrd today, some of the eulogizing will undoubtedly focus on Byrd's staunch opposition to the Iraq War and strong criticism of Bush's attacks on the Constitution.

But how many Dems will pause to remember the really important thing about Byrd's denunciation of Bush's adventures: That it came at a moment when Bush's swaggering popularity had so many other high-profile Democrats toppling like dominoes?

Howie P.S.: Here's video (02:14) of Byrd playing the fiddle on "Pop Goes The Country."
