Don't Talk About the War

Perhaps Marshall Wittman can explain this one to me, if he can pull himself away from his John McCain shrine for a moment. Lieberman, as those in the Lieberman wing of the Democratic party will tell us, is the kind of Democrat we should embrace in large part because of his hawkish or muscular or visionary or whatever we're calling it this week foreign policy. To win, Democrats need to embrace such foreign policy leaders.

Fine, fine. But if that's the case, why won't Joe talk about the war? If he's the foreign policy leader we're supposed to embrace, why won't he, you know, lead on the damn issue?

I just don't understand.
