SEN. JOHN WARNER
staunchly conservative senator from Virginia, supporter of the Bush gang and Iraq war, who today will come out, with Susan Collins and Ben Nelson, with a resolution against Bush's escalation. This is will be non-binding but significant. It means that Bush has no major allies. Except for McCain, who must realize by now that he's hitched his wagon to a flying piece of shrapnel. This is all in the context of the weekend's rising bloodbath and Maliki statements that expose the Bush program as a sham. (Warner, BTW, has a lot to worry about. The Dems have targeted his seat as one to focus on in '08).
