    Tom Daschle is the one who got the anthrax letter.  Then you call him a gutless coward for his vote on the Iraq war?   How many gutless cowards are still sitting in congress?

      Policies that were wrong under George W. Bush are no less wrong because Barack Obama is in the White House. - Bob Herbert

      He did cave.  He was gutless, not so much for his vote for the war (which was bad enough), but for the way he caved into Bush's demand that a vote on the war be taken before the November election.  As Majority Leader, he could have prevented that.  That is a major way in which his cowardice was different from that exhibited by others who were merely scared into voting for the war.
