Tomorrow's Connecticut Senate primary will be a very telling election to see if the Dems will start going down the same path they did for Vietnam. Senator Lieberman has been a very strong supporter of the Iraq war and his defeat would once again show that libs are weak on defense and can't be counted on to finish the job of securing Iraq and the region. They would all take his defeat as proof that being against the war is a winning position. Around the nation you will here more calls from Dems to cut and run.
This would be extremely unhelpful for the war on terror and the region. One of the main reasons I've been told by Iraqis I've talked to as to why they don't do more for their country is that they are afraid of retribution when the US leaves to early like we did in '91. They have no faith that the US will finish the fight (and neither does Al Qaida) and why should they when all they hear is cut and run from the Dems who could be in charge come November (I don't believe that for one second...my prediction 3 months out is we will actually pick up one seat in the Senate and I'm still holding predictions for the House) and the MSM.
