Democratic presidential candidate Tom Vilsack apparently thinks we’ve been at war in Iraq for 5 1/2 years. Perhaps he’s thinking of 9/11, which was 5 1/3 years ago.

He was also grilled by both Sean Hannity and liberal Kirsten Powers, sitting in for Alan Colmes, about Senator Kennedy’s plan to deny President Bush the funds for a troop surge. Powers in particular had a hard time understanding the “middle ground” Vilsack claims to have found between Kennedy’s and Bush’s proposals.
