Anti-War: Where are the Dems?

The Green Knight gets it exactly right.

Just as the GOP, in its continual angry whining about victimization, refuses to admit that it is in fact the governing party, so the Democrats, with their complacent bland spinelessness, refuse to admit that they are the opposition party…

The anti-war mainstream is at a critical moment right now. It could really use the help of one of the big parties in Washington. But if the Democrats won't be a part of the anti-war mainstream, then they have no right to complain about what the anti-war mainstream becomes. Lead, follow, or get out of the way, guys.
