Dean in Iowa

Dean wonders why the Dems who voted to authorize the war did so. Were they suckered?
But Dean, the former governor of Vermont, said Kerry and three other Democrats seeking the 2004 nomination bear some responsibility for the Bush mistake because they supported the war. Dean opposed the war.

U.S. Rep. Dick Gephardt of Missouri, U.S. Sens. Kerry, John Edwards of North Carolina and Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut voted for the resolution in Congress last fall that gave Bush authority to attack Iraq.

"I want to know why the four fellows I'm running against swallowed it hook, line and sinker, if I could figure it out from Vermont," said Dean, who completed a two-day Iowa visit with stops around Des Moines.
Right on. Millions of people figured it out, but not our elected representatives. Pathetic.
