U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Denver, said he supports the concept of passing a binding resolution in Congress that would restrict military involvement in Iraq, but that such a plan could only succeed with bipartisan support.The Democrats plan to introduce a resolution this week rescinding authorization for the Iraq War.
The proposal would repeal a 2002 Senate vote that authorized U.S. military involvement in Iraq and replace it with a more stringent plan that includes removing troops from combat by March 2008. ....[Salazar] ... emphasized that sponsors need to bring Republicans on board before introducing the measure.Is there anything Salazar will agree to without Republican support? He wasn't elected to be a Republican water carrier. He was elected as a Democrat. I think it's about time he began acting like one. How many more Coloradans must lose their lives in Iraq before he puts politics aside when deciding how to vote?
