Connecticut Post to Shays and Lieberman.

Conventional wisdom has it that Republicans, while sticking with the Bush-Lieberman-Shays line for now, were chastened by last November's election losses, and will not tolerate another election cycle of continued war without end. Don't bet on it. The president has shown no sign he is pulling out troops — none. Instead, he's busy high-fiving himself after Democrats rescinded a demand for timelines to leave that country. As for Shays and Lieberman, their credibility on Iraq is so shot that it hardly matters what they say. They've been wrong over and over, time after time, year after year. Why should anyone possibly care what they have to say?
