    saying she would vote to authorize more spending for the military in Iraq.  She can't "let them down."

    •  I read this right after reading (none)
      a story on Yahoo that the Pentagon is forbidding soldiers from buying their own armor because they arent buying it from the contracted vendor.

      If I thought that appropriating more money would get them the armor and other things they need, then I would be all for it, and perhaps that is what she has in mind. But I fear that more money means more for Haliburton and other contractors and it would not get where it was truly needed.
