    At first I wanted this vote to be a no because going into Syria would be stupid. Now I want it to be a no vote so that Kerry can have egg on his stupid face.

    It would be a foolish thing to go into Syria, but then again John Kerry is a foolish man.

    Principles, ethics and perspectives are like the wind among most political enthusiasts, particularly when power is a factor in any of the former.

    He does look more foolish than most political slime-balls though, doesn't he?

    I'm not so sure. I'm very interested in which democrats will vote for/against it because an election is coming up, and many of them recently ran campaign strategies where they incessantly bashed Bush and Republicans for their handling of similar issues. Seems like it might be tough to support something that's even worse than what you were just railing on a few years ago. Some might consider it hypocritical and others, like me, might have trouble telling the difference between Republicans & Democrats. They just seem to reverse roles on international security issues when power changes hands.

    all good points.... but I don't see congress.. either house... rebuffing El Primo when he wants to bomb something.
    democrats already have MSNBC selling how this decision is very different from Iraq... it's a marketing campaign to separate Obama from bush and give Democrats cover., most likely to preempt the points you touched on.

    I think it'll pass the Senate easily... Reid is already on board, so are key Republicans.
    it can potentially get dicey in the House, but i think there are enough votes in the bag already to pass it.

    if you can't tell the difference between the 2 factions of the one party we have...well... good for you, you're paying attention

    It would be very interesting to see Republicans stand up and say that they no longer want to help eliminate WMDs.
