Let the resounding defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman send a cold shiver down the spine of every Democrat who supported the invasion of Iraq and who continues to support, in any way, this senseless, immoral, unwinnable (ed. note: And remarks like these help us win?) war. Make no mistake about it: We, the majority of Americans, want this war ended — and we will actively work to defeat each and every one of you who does not support an immediate end to this war.
I’m here to tell you that you will never make it through the Democratic primaries unless you start now by strongly opposing the war. It is your only hope.
To every Democratic Senator and Congressman who continues to back Bush’s War, allow me to inform you that your days in elective office are now numbered. Myself and tens of millions of citizens are going to work hard to actively remove you from any position of power.
I never though I’d say this, but Pat Caddell was right:
CADDELL: I think if he loses, you’re going to empower what I call the real fringe of this Party, who believe that they’ve been right all along and they’re going to start setting litmus tests for everybody.
