fhagellieberman.jpg Chuck Hagel debated the "Last Honest man" last night on PBS's Newshour. As you watch you can see Lieberman is clearly out of step with America on the war and notice how he says it may be the last chance in Iraq. So---we've been hearing from the Lieberman/McCain block that this is our last chance--to---maybe--which means Lieberman will be pushing to keep the Iraq war going. Hagel also smacks Cheney again.

Lieberman: I think we ought to give General Petraeus a chance, along with 160,000 Americans in uniform, who will be serving under him, to succeed in Iraq. It may be the last chance, but I think it's worth giving them that chance.

Hagel: GWEN IFILL: A final question, and for you both, and once again from Vice President Cheney. His interview, Senator Hagel, today at CNN, he said that part of what's going on here is that people do not have the stomach to complete this mission. Senator Hagel, your response to that?
SEN. CHUCK HAGEL: Oh, I'm so sorry the vice president so underestimates the people of this country. He has so little faith in this country to say something like that. That's an astounding statement from the vice president of the United States.

You're telling me -- or maybe more directly, maybe the vice president should tell the families of those who have lost their lives, over 3,000, and over 23,000 wounded, some very seriously for life, that they don't have the stomach? Come on, let's get real here.

PBS has more of the transcript posted...

I thought Bush spent weeks listening to everyone he could find about what to do next in Iraq. Is Lieberman telling us that the new course has been dicated by Gen. Petraeus?
