Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Are Democrats growing spines?

Former Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Bob Graham (D-FL) is lashing out at the administration for concealing information related to the 2001 terrorist attacks. Graham is running for president and obviously wants to raise his profile. It doesn't change the fact that his experience in intelligence lends him credibility when he speaks on the issue of terrorism.

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) isn't letting accusations die that Vice President Dick Cheney's former employer Halliburton received favorable treatment in landing a contract in postwar Iraq.

It also appears the filibusters on two of the presidents judicial nominees won't end. Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) says the Senate has approved 124 (98.4%) of President Bush's nominees.

After wallowing in President Bush's shadow while failing to question his handling of foreign policy, it appears Democrats are rediscovering the role of the opposition party.
