Nancy Pelosi exposes the hypocrisy and front-runner nature of Democratic (big d) politics. Biden (Hillary, Kerry, etc.) was for the Iraqi war before such a sentiment was unpopular. Pelosi wanted to make sure the "enhanced interrogation methods" were enough, until it such ideas became out of fashion. Republicans are excoriated for being backwards and outside of popular thought, but might it just be that Republicans are sticking to their guns on principled issues? While we may not agree with all of the planks (myself included) I can respect politicians that stand by their honestly held convictions rather than run with the wind. Pelosi should be ashamed. Say what you want about Bush and Cheney, but Pelosi represents all that is wrong with politics.
It may bother me that I don't agree with certain policies, but hopefully those policies stay still long enough for me to disagree with them.
