...of the Daily Kos. This was on the Washington Post chat following this Sunday's Outlook article on Hillary Clinton. I wrote:
You criticize Hillary Clinton for not taking a strong stand for pulling the troops out of Iraq. You're of course right that one should take a strong stand for whatever you believe in, but for someone who's against the war, wouldn't you want to keep the troops in there as long as possible, so that nobody can blame the subsequent failure on pulling out early?
To which he responded:
I wore combat boots. My brothers and sisters in arms, serving in Iraq, need to be brought home safely.

Political ramifications be damned.
He of course represents the majority view within the Democratic party, and has credentials that I can't beat. But still, no matter how much damage Iraq has done to us in the short term, I can't see the use in ignoring the long term either, as he seems to be suggesting. Pulling out might seem like an attractive option now, but if it lands us in Iran or someplace else later, then I don't see how that's helped anything.
