Pelosi Hails Democrats' Diverse War Stances: "House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said yesterday that Democrats should not seek a unified position on an exit strategy in Iraq, calling the war a matter of individual conscience and saying differing positions within the caucus are a source of strength for the party."

    I think she's right. We can't get into a time machine and change things. We're in a war. We should atleast finish the job.

    I guess what I got from it Nolff is that she is saying that Democrats don't know WHAT the heck they think. Kind of like the previous guy that needed a definition for "victory".

    Hi Jack!
    I regret that Pelosi takes that position. I think the Dems should be hammering Bush every day about Iraq. He says "much of the intelligence was wrong" but the invasion was the right thing to do anyway? The elction is over, lets start bringing the troops home.

    Hi Mok!

    I think the Democrats are demonstrating once again the doublespeak that they are capable of. So many of them supported and even pushed the Iraq war and their words are coming back to haunt them. This is just a shameless ploy to save face, and nothing more. Of course it should show them for the party they are--a party in disarray with NO direction.

    Maybe independent minded and principled liberals will begin to do what independent minded and principled conservatives are beginning to do, and that is hold their party accountable--or get out.

    Well, I gotta say, the democrats are going to need to agree on a cohesive (and coherent) position about the war for their platform before the next elections, or they're sunk. Voters seem to prefer a candidate who's decidedly wrong to one who's undecided.

    Agree, Shea. Ambiguity is never a good political message, and it is hurting the Democrats. To much "nuance" is self defeating.

    Do you think they'll welcome pro-lifers too? Give me a break. The dems have one position: Anti-whatever republicans support.

    Kevin, there are what you call "pro-lifers" in the democratic party, just as there are pro-choice advocates who are republican. But your description of democrats applies as much to republicans, if not more so. Their position has simply been one of contrariness-no-matter-what for decades.

    Have to say you have a point, Shea, but I think the Dems have proven themselves more incoherent than ever before. At one time "nuance" (otherwise known before as doublespeak) used to work well for the democrat party, but with the advent of alternative media, the inconsistencies can be broadcast over and over again. Deviation from principle is harder to hide, and it is hurting the likes of Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, and other Democrats who speak out of both sides of their mouths.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
