Getting serious

I read this article in the Washington Post, and thought, hmm...these are not household names. Yet, in a sane world, each of these people would be on the political talk show circuit explaining what our next move in Iraq should be. Why? Well, because they were right about Iraq and as such, they have displayed some fundamental understanding of foreign policy. They said the following BEFORE the war in Iraq started:

John Spratt (D-SC)
"the outcome after the conflict is actually going to be the hardest part, and it is far less certain."
Ike Skelton (D-MO)
Warned that Bush's postwar strategy must "take seriously" the possibility that a replacement regime "might be rejected by the Iraqi people, leading to civil unrest and even anarchy."
David Obey (D-WI)
He spoke then about poor preparation for postwar Iraq, a concern he developed after listening to State Department officials.
Instead, we get Joe Lieberman and John McCain gracing every Sunday morning talk show. How does that make any sense?
