DOVISH DEMOCRATS

DOVISH DEMOCRATS: Howard Fineman explains the growing number of anti-war candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination. My guess, predicated on my belief that victory in Iraq will be swift and relatively bloodless, is that one of the pro-war Democrats (Edwards or Lieberman) will win the nomination because the other side will look silly. Of course, the sad irony is that the best chance the Democrats have of regaining the White House is for the war to go badly. (via RCP)
