The Democrats are not running to aid Sheehan's quest to bring the war home. At this moment only ONE elected Democrat (Maxine Waters) has visited Crawford in support of the camp. Where are they Dems? Support for Bush is nose diving. Things aren't looking good for the administration. But the Dems are taken cover. Why?

I think he puts it quite succiently what we are up against at the moment.
So here's more from the same writer on Sheehan and the Democrats from Antiwar.com...
"Howard Dean, the restless chair of the DNC, says it is the responsibility of the Bush administration to come up with an exit strategy, not the Democrats. Talk about the inability to offer an alternative. What makes Dean believe Bush could ever provide any reasonable ... anything? Let alone an exit policy? Dean's tangled jargon is just another case of the Democrats' inability to be a legitimate opposition party.
Sens. Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, two prominent Democrats in the race for the White House in 2008, aren't having any of Feingold either. Stay the course, they say. Whatever the hell that means. Stay the course of what? Have they forgotten that there is no goal? No plan? No course? What we do know, however, is that thousands more troops and civilians are sure to die as the U.S. continues to occupy Iraq.
Fortunately, the grassroots of the Democratic Party do not agree with Kerry and Clinton. They want the troops out of Iraq. Many claim that this rift between the party grassroots and the D.C. Democrats is a fundamental identity crisis. They see the party as having no legitimate direction. No heart. No soul. They are right."
