Feingold Defeated

FEINGOLD DEFEATED….The Feingold proposal to begin withdrawal from Iraq within 120 days and suspend funding for operations completely by March 2008 has been defeated. That’s no surprise, but the margin was: it was defeated 29-67.

I guess that’s not really surprising, though. Just disappointing. In any case, Democrats are fools for not sticking together on a point of principle like this.
