After a week of trying to brazen it out, Senator Potomac Rose has apologized "with tears welling in his eyes." This man is the number 2 democrat. Neither he nor Senators Clinton or Kennedy or Kerry or any other top party leaders saw the need to immediately denounce such an asinine comparison made during a time of war. A concept that the senator was certainly familiar with in the past.
"December 17, 1998It's the utterly transparent and amoral political opportunism by the people at the helm that's poisoning the DNC.
DURBIN STATEMENT ON MILITARY ACTION AGAINST IRAQ
I fully support President Clinton and our national security team's decision to take swift action against Saddam Hussein.
The attack against this dictator should come as no surprise.
The record clearly shows that he has harassed American and United Nations inspectors, ordered the destruction of important documents in anticipation of inspections and hampered the ability of inspectors to carry out their mission. His defiant protection of his weapons of mass destruction cannot go unanswered.
The mission has bipartisan support, including U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms (R-NC), Chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee; U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN); and U.S. Sen. John Warner (R-VA), incoming Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
I call on those who question the motives of the president and his national security advisors to join with the rest of America in presenting a united front to our enemies abroad.
The men and women who are risking their lives in defense of our national and global security deserve nothing less."

It's extremely difficult to describe a change in mood. By mood I mean the feeling in the air. If you've ever been lucky enough to watch a herd for any length of time you may know what I mean. Something's up.
