Looks like the Democrats have given up on trying to form a coherent message on national defense and are throwing their hands up in the air... in frustration, not surrender!

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.

Pelosi said Democrats will produce an issue agenda for the 2006 elections but it will not include a position on Iraq. There is consensus within the party that President Bush has mismanaged the war and that a new course is needed, but House Democrats should be free to take individual positions, she sad.

"There is no one Democratic voice . . . and there is no one Democratic position," Pelosi said in an interview with Washington Post reporters and editors.

Definitely the people we should put in charge of the country. Anyway, I suppose having no position is better than enabling your opponents to make commercials with you waving white flags.
