Why now?

That's the question Democratic lawmakers and strategists are asking about President Bush's demand that Congress authorize war against Iraq before November's midterm elections. Though few doubt the merits of the case against Saddam Hussein, an increasing number are questioning whether the timing -- 60 days before an election -- was designed to benefit Republican candidates.

Here is the rest of the story:

I question the Democrats. Why were they for action against Iraq in 98 but not now? After 4 years of no inspections Iraq is a bigger danger.

The dems, as Bob noted, were all in favor of dealing with Iraq in '98 when Mr. Clinton spelled out the dangers of Hussein. They didn't even even demand that Clinton ask Congress first before he made any moves (on attacking other nations, not on interns). Of course, they knew Clinton had no intentions of actually dealing with the problem, so it was a safe move, I suppose.
Its funny, though, that what with fled Iraqi scientists saying Hussein is as little as six months away from nuclear weaponry, the dems want to hold off until after the November elections before passing any resolution. The democratic party seems to be willing to play with the well-being of my family in order to play politics. Speaking of which, Daschel has prevented a House-passed bill on prescription meds from going before the Senate and then on to the oval office so it appears that others are not concerned about the poor citizens of this nation, yet he says the "kitchen table" topics of discussion (or is it breakfast table?) are more important than dealing with the dangers of Hussein.
The democratic party leadership see everything as politics and strategy, including the safety of the citizen.

How true TC just look at hillary. I don't think she's missed one opportunity to use the WTC to her advantage.

BWWAHAHAHAHAHA... They don't cares about Saddam, the Irakis peoples or the USA peoples. They just want to have more chances for the incomming elections.

" Oh no, please, don't do the war now. Please, wait or we will lost the elections ! and it's not fair . It's not important if Saddam is ready to nuke us, or killing us with bio-chem weapons. Not at all. What is really important, it's the elections. And damn, we want to win. We don't want to protect you, we just want to win the elections "

Yeeah,vote for the Dem's !
