Throw enough and one will stick?

That seems to describe the rationale behind the Democrat's failure to come up with a cohesive view on Iraq. As this interview with Nancy Pelosi illustrates (from the Washington Post):

There is no one Democratic voice . . . and there is no one Democratic position

Huh? I agree that a political party can have disagreement, but to avoid any concrete position as if it were a badge of honor is foolish. Senator Rahm Emanuel doesn't think the water is murky enough yet, as this statement shows:

As for Iraq policy, at the right time, we'll have a position.

When is the right time? Closer to the elections? So the Dems can call a race that is almost finished? This takes Kerry-style waffling to a whole new level. Why declare a position that may require a flip-flop when you can avoid declaring anything at all?

Pretty pathetic. For more on this inspiring issue, see these past posts:

Give me a break. For the past two years, dems have been whining "the President doesn't have a plan, the President doesn't have a plan." Now, all of a sudden, they get to put their money where there mouths are and they produce a big fat goose egg. Not even the dems themselves can give us one good reason why they should be in power.
