Markos' First Newsweek Column Up: The Iraq Funding Bill
It's the second most widely read article on Newsweek's site. Go on over and read it. Besides being really good, it'd be great to push him to Number One. A snippet:
If Reid and Pelosi stand firm they will finally fulfill one of their key 2006 campaign promises, proving they have the courage to stand tough for what they believe, while giving the vast majority of the American people what they want.
If they yield they will reinforce perceptions of Democratic weakness. Worse, they will be siding with an unpopular president and an unpopular Republican Party over an unpopular war, and their own popularity will suffer as a result.
The options to those of us outside of the Beltway are so obvious it's truly unfathomable that we are still left wondering which path the Democrats will take.
Congress is now on a two week break. The Senate returns December 3 and the House on December 4.
