Times Article: The man who stands between the US and the Next War
Back in the 1950s there were a bunch of neo-isolationist Republican Senators working against President Eisenhower's policies. Minority leader, Lyndon Johnson, got the Democrats to side with the President against the Congressional Republicans and in 2 years Johnson was Majority leader with neo-isolationism on the run. What if we try this again? What if the Democrats side with Gates & McConnell against the Cheney's insanity? Can we prevent the coming war with Iran?
I have suggested this to my guys in the House and Senate and Joe Biden's office (I figure he'd be into this kind of strategy).
