54. I won't argue that Democrats didn't know that Iraq was well contained

And weren't a threat to us or anyone in the region. It should have been a straight Party vote against the IWR. But if I recall, we still had not a public investigation into 9/11 nor had the anthrax perps been found. I further think many Democrats in Congress felt that this administration's willingness to ignore the warnings of 9/11 made them criminally liable for this dereliction of duty.

What if every Democrat had voted against this act? I'm betting another attack occurs shortly thereafter and the evidence this time implicates Iraq directly. Immediately, Bush, Cheney, and the neocon Wurlitzer go into ovrrdrive, demanding an immediate attack. But, equally important, Democrats are now framed as "IRAQI APPEASERS...a Party complicit in letting this happen. Democrats are completely taken out as an opposition party - Bush Cheney get their war and kill the Democratic Party in the process.

Call me a paranoid, but I think that administration had a plan for One Party rule to compliment their PNAC.
