Talking to Wolf Blitzer today, Howard Dean stripped away the cover for Republicans supporting the Levin-Warner resolution:
“The resolution is not watered down,” Dean asserted. “They changed a few words: I think this is a very smart move on the part of Harry reid. If we can get significant numbers of Republicans to repudiate the Republican president’s policy, which is about to –about what’s about to happen, then I think that’s very, very positive.”
Meanwhile, John McCain has authored a new resolution that has the support of John Cornyn, Joe Lieberman and others. It still uses the “benchmark” language, but the wording is not available yet.
