It might be time for some primary challenges next year. Maybe a few folks from both parties _not even making it to the general election_ could get the point across that this bill was a bad idea.
But there I go being all idealistic again.

Try to follow the score card on this one. Woah! Kennedy and McCain both alligned with Bush; Conservative Reps. & Webb against; Brownback flopping in the breeze and seeing where the wind blows. Graham was for. I’m not sure what to think being for the vote makes Lieberman? Does that put him in line with his party or sucking or dropping trow for GWB again? Hmmm…

James-
You’d better hope the electorate suddenly develops a long-term memory. As Michael Barone notes:
That leaves the Senate sharply split between those whose seats are up in 2008 and those whose seats are up in 2010 or 2012. The 2008 senators voted 24 to 9 against cloture, with Johnson not voting. The 2010 and 2012 senators voted 37 to 29 for cloture. That

I think that Hagel and Graham are done. I’ve thought the former for awhile, but the latter didn’t do himself any favors.
As to voter long memories–heh, I can only hope :) .

Who’s done? Well el presidente Jorge W. Bush for one (but he’s been done a while now…). Word is Hagel is not running in 2008. And you can’t beat a somebody with a nobody. Graham is a somebody. There are a lot of has beens ready to take him on (David Beasley…come on down!) but I don’t think he is ready to go yet.
So who’s done? John Sununu.
