republicans on iraq: blocking debate, buying ownership

Good to see Senate Republicans blocking debate on a resolution opposing the surge in Iraq. Harry Reid had it exactly right: "What you just saw was Republicans giving the president the green light to escalate in Iraq."

Bush is gone in two years (unless he tries for a military coup or something), so the Democrats should do their damnedest to make it clear that Iraq isn't just "Mr. Bush's War" (as nice a ring as that phrase has), but is a REPUBLICAN War. Bob Dole used to complain about Democratic wars (he actually said "Democrat"), and there's no reason not to return the favor.
