I just got a call from Tim Carpenter of Progressive Democrats of America. Tim Goodrich of Iraq Veterans Against the War is going on Air America momentarily with this news as well.

The California Democratic Party is convened in Sacramento. The platform committee has passed and is recommending to the full party on Sunday inclusion in the platform of a call to end the occupation of Iraq and immediately bring the troops home. The proposal will be part of the consent calendar, the regular business of the party. This is not a resolution, but language in the official platform. No signatures need to be collected. No rebellion on the floor is required. This will, as far as we know, be a first for any state for either of the two parties that just voted overwhelmingly in Congress to push us toward a war in Iran.
