Mark Steyn says the Democrats are horribly conflicted about the war and that the UK Labour Party's divisions are simple in comparison. Here are some of Mark Steyn's sort of against the war factions of the Democratic Party:
Faction B (the Paul Wellstone option) is also anti-war but trying hard not to have to say so between now and election day in November.
Faction C (the Al Gore option) was pro-war when it was Bill Clinton in charge but anti-war now there's a Republican rallying the troops.
Faction D (the Hillary Rodham option) can go either way but remains huffily insistent that to ask them to express an opinion would be to "politicize" the war.
Faction E (the John Kerry option) can't quite figure which position alienates least of their supporters and so articulates a whole all-you-can-eat salad bar of conflicting positions and then, in a weird post-modern touch, ostentatiously agonizes over the "inherent risks" in each of them.
He also provides a great take on Tom Daschle's ranting on the Senate floor as a result of the position that Al Gore's anti-war speech put him in.
