It's Official: Democrats Have No Position On Iraq

Nancy Pelosi tries to put a smiley face on incoherence and inconsistency by calling it diversity.

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.

Meanwhile: The house organ of the Democratic Party, the New York Times, apparently has no position on the great success of yesterday's voting in Iraq. They fail to run a single editorial or op-ed or guest editorial about the historic day today.

I guess it takes a couple of days to figure out how such unambiguously good news is really bad news.
