    Joe has a solid progressive record on most issues that those of us on dKos would favor, but his support for Bush's war is not an insignificant matter, for at least 2 major reasons:

    1. It demonstrates his bad judgement going back to the first Gulf War in 91 when he disagreed with Bush's old man and said we'd made a mistake not going into Baghdad.  He later championed the Iraq Regime Change Resolution in 98.  By the time 911 happened Joe had as big a hard-on for Saddam as W and any of the worst neocons who got us into this mess.
    1. This catastrophic mistake has destroyed our ability to pursue traditional Democratic Party objectives like education and health care for years to come.  

    Joe didn't have a minor disagreement with the Party.  He lead us down the other Party's path to devastating results.

    Now if that's not enough for even the most moderate Democrat to throw Joe under the bus I don't know what is.

    Lamont's the whole package.  That's why we should support him here on dKos.
