Iraq Reverberations

Assuming you've finished your morning reading, here's some afternoon reading for you:

  • Minnesota: Democrat Mike Ciresi makes it crystal clear that he would urge for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq if he was a Senator. That clarity puts Republican Norm Coleman's milquetoast meandering in perspective.

  • Not wasting any time, the DSCC is taking out ads in Oregon and New Hampshire newspapers slamming Republicans Gordon Smith and John Sununu for supporting the filibuster against debate on an Iraq anti-escalation resolution. Jonathan Singer at MyDD has the details.

  • Stuart Rothenberg suggests that the Democrats are in sight of a filibuster-proof 60-seat majority by 2010, highlighting that 40 of the 67 seats up in 2008 and 2010 are held by the GOP, as opposed to only 27 by Democrats. Hat tip: TPM Cafe.
