Moral Clarity On Iraq

There is not many issues that I would agree with Sen. Joe Lieberman (ID-Conn), but his strong support for the Iraq surge can not be more clear than what he said today on the senate floor. http://corner.nationalreview.com has the synopses.
Sen. Lieberman is a man of conscience. He has been that way since the United States entered into the Iraq theatre on the War Against Terror. He has not changed his basic position. Unlike Sen. Hilary Clinton, who I believe is on the 12th position on the troop surge, what to do with the troops and when they will "come home." For whatever reason other than his belief that the United States would be committing an immoral act leaving before the job is done, Sen. Lieberman nearly lost his seat in last year's mid term election.
The tragedy is that there are not more senators like Mr. Lieberman who can stand on principle. We need more Sen. Liebermans and less Sen. Clintons.
