Brummett talks to Rep. Marion Berry. When the Blue Dogs have gone dovish, you know it's over for Bush's war.
This was the morning after President Bush had tried to call out his Democratic critics, saying their timetable for withdrawal threatened the troops and national security.
If this congressman in this district can openly oppose the war and endorse a timetable for withdrawal and encounter no political fallout, then this president and this war are in a world of even greater political hurt than we thought.
We appear to have reached a tipping point at which calls for patriotic support of war have been trumped by the only card capable of such a trump. That's common sense.
