Darcy Burner gets WaPo coverage on page A3

Above we've got Dubyah and Dave Reichert. While Representative Reichert tries at times to distance his efforts from the current administration, he, like the vast majority of Republicans in Congress, certainly have to accept their role in this mess he is about to leave us with. He'll also call in Bu$hCo to help him raise some campaign cash. That enabling role for Dave Reichert goes well beyond Iraq yet it's a good place to start. Darcy Burner is certainly going to make sure voters in Washington's 8th have a clear choice for new leadership come this November. Today she recieved page A3 coverage from the WaPo's Paul Kane with 42 Democrats Vow a Drawdown in Iraq If They Win Seats. I'll question however the following assertion he made:
Rejecting their party leaders' assertions that economic troubles have become the top issue on voters' minds, leaders of the coalition of 38 House and four Senate candidates pledged to make immediate withdrawal from Iraq the centerpiece of their campaigns.
There are plenty of problems to hang around anybody from the GOP right now, the economic troubles being at the top of the list. I'm not sure that Democratic leaders have made this decision but Mr. Kane is likely better informed than me. If that's true, then it might be that once again the "leaders" in my party are ready to squander opportunities. It could be that Darcy Burner is showing even more courageous leadership by setting a course that's different from the strategists that so often derail Democratic candidates. John Gunn
