Okay, maybe voting Dem was a good idea after all.

From Daily Kos:

Do you want to know why you elected new blood to the Congress? Because the freshmen understand why they are there and how to address the issues.

Democrat Chris Murphy, CT-05 (via press release):

"This bill is two inches away from giving a blank check to the President for this war, and I will not support it because it continues our commitment with no plan to redeploy our troops out of the civil war in Iraq.

"People in Connecticut and across the country overwhelmingly support redeploying our troops out of Iraq, yet this message falls on deaf ears in the Bush Administration. This bill may pass today, and the President may sign it, but I cannot support it. I was sent here to bring this war to a close, and this bill doesn't do that."

That's not so hard, is it?

See? The newbies know why they won: because voters wanted a change. It's the old-guard Dems who don't seem to have a clue.
