No, the Democrats didn't hold a meeting in Hollywood last week. That was only the Republicans fumbling in the dark.

But the Dems. shouldn't be so smug because Obama got re-elected and realize they too are in need of a serious overhaul.

Monday I wrote my take on the Republicans. Today I'll focus on the Democrats.

To begin with, none other than 21 Senate Democrats, 1 Republican and 1 independent voted in 2002 against giving George W. Bush the authority to invade Iraq. The majority of Senate Democrats (29) took the easy route and jumped on the Iraq war bandwagon, forever besmirching themselves in voting for the worst foreign policy disaster since the Viet Nam war.

What did the 23 know that the majority did not? That there were no WMD in Iraq (destroyed by the IAEA nuclear inspectors in the early 90's after the first Gulf war and not exactly secret information) and this was a war of choice (with Saddam Hussein posing no threat to the U.S., had no connection to 9/11 and was not in league with Osama bin Laden).

But that vote reflected the majority of Senate Dems. as weak kneed and pathetic, fearful to vote against the tide that was clamoring to go to war.
