Wow, so after the failed Iraq surge vote, Harry Reid lets the Senate vote to go on recess. That's the key, not the nonsensical anti-surge resolution which was always going to fail. You see, recess is something the Senators want for themselves. This is how they suffer from the Iraq war, by having to give up a weekend. Keeping them in session, and I know it sounds lame, is one of the only ways that a Senate majority leader can create leverage on the opposition to vote. The fact that Reid wasn't even willing to force the Senate to give up recess time to debate the war is pathetic.

Politics is about priorities, not just theater. Reid just doesn't think the war in Iraq is an important priority at this moment.
