Deb

Damozel,

This is a comment on part of the New Republic quote:

"A couple more mavericky votes: She was the only New York Democrat to support the May 2007 war-funding bill; the others voted against it because it did not contain a troop-withdrawal timetable. She also voted for H.R. 6304, the FISA Amendments Act, which extended immunity to telecoms that spied on U.S. citizens at the behest of the Bush administration. "

Didn't a whole bunch of Dems vote for Telecom Amnesty (including then-Senator Obama)?

TNR didn't provide a bill # for the war-funding bill, so I couldn't find the roll call vote. Do you know how our prominent "liberal" Dems voted for that?

And who else would make a Pretty Convincing Republican?

President Obama 'orders Pakistan drone attacks'

Missiles fired from suspected US drones killed at least 15 people inside Pakistan today, the first such strikes since Barack Obama became president and a clear sign that the controversial military policy begun by George W Bush has not changed.

Security officials said the strikes, which saw up to five missiles slam into houses in separate villages, killed seven "foreigners" - a term that usually means al-Qaeda - but locals also said that three children lost their lives.

Barack Obama asks Gordon Brown for more soldiers


President Barack Obama has asked Britain to supply up to 4,000 extra frontline troops to help a planned American surge of forces in Afghanistan, defence sources say.

The request poses a dilemma for Gordon Brown because the Ministry of Defence (MoD) believes it can only spare 1,700 extra troops.

Obama has identified the Afghan conflict as an American priority and wants Britain to be a key partner. The new US strategy is likely to test the “special relationship” between the two allies, putting Brown under pressure to show commitment to the Afghan conflict by announcing an increase in troop numbers.

He said he'd never done so without this near-death. So in S.V., people are more inclined to face death in many forms and throw out the dead, the old, the stagnant without flinching.
