So What, now?

Super Tuesday didn’t tell me anything that I didn’t already know.  I knew that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were very close.  They are in a tight race.  Super Tuesday did nothing to change my mind.  This race is not going to be a sprint but a marathon.
On the Republican side, I knew that the more that people saw Mitt Romney the less they liked him.  John McCain, on the other hand, is a likable guy.  Mike Huckabee is also very likable.  So, Huckabee picked up some southern states – no surprise.  He is from Arkansas and appeals to Southern Christians.   John McCain increased his lead.  Mike Huckabee picked up enough delegates to continue to matter.  Mitt Romney, on the other hand, has to decide whether spending millions of dollars to come in a distant second or third is worth it.  As my mother said, “No sense throwing good money after bad.”

Talk show host Ed Schultz does a nice job summarizing the results on CNN.

Iraq War – So what now?

There is a famous scene from the Untouchables in which it looks like there will be no case against Capone. Malone (Sean Connery) turns to Eliott Ness (Kevin Cosner) and says, “So, what are you going to do now?” I feel like liberals all across the country have turned to the Senate and said the same thing. The answer that seems to be coming out of the Senate (Joe Biden and Carl Levin leading the way) is to revoke the original authorization. Let’s remember that the case to go to war was built on a 3 legged stool – Iraq buys uranium from Niger, 9/11 hijacker meeting with an Iraqi official in Prague and mobile biochemical weapons laboratories.  All of these points have been found to be 100% untrue.  Therefore, if you are basing a war on those facts, it seems to make sense that if the facts prove to be untrue you should be able to revoke the authorization.  All I can say is that I hope that this works.
