Democracy in America

President Bush, in his State of the Union address two weeks ago:
With the distance of time, we find ourselves debating the causes of conflict and the course we have followed. Such debates are essential when a great democracy faces great questions.
Today's headline from the Washington Post:
GOP Stalls Debate On Troop Increase
A long-awaited Senate showdown on the war in Iraq was shut down before it even started yesterday, when nearly all Republicans voted to stop the Senate from considering a resolution opposing President Bush's plan to send 21,500 additional combat troops into battle.
What a sad state our union is in.
