Whatchagonna do, Ed?

Looking through some columns from last year, I ran across this:

As Fester-in-Chief Ed Garvey wrote immediately following this year’s annual progressive spew-fest: “Message to Congress: thousands of progressives are watching to see if you have the courage to follow the people. Bring the troops home!”

And…when Congress doesn’t?

And when the Democrat candidate for President won’t?

What then, Ed? Whatchagonna do?
At the time, I was assuming that Hillary Clinton would be the Democrat nominee – she’d been polishing her hawkish credentials for a while by then, while Obama and Edwards – her two biggest rivals – were racing each other for the Kossite anti-war Left.

How things have changed. Obama now says any withdrawal will be “conditions-based:”

It's hard to anticipate where we may be six months from now, or a year from now, or a year and a half from now.

Plus, he says we’ll leave a counter-terrorism and support force in Iraq even after the withdrawal. If McCain were saying that, the Left would be apoplectic at the thought of a permanent occupation.

Anyway, I ask again: Mr. Garvey, whatchagonna do?

I’m sure he’ll let us know during the next Fighting Bob Fest.
