"Let's give victory a chance and then in August of 2008, if it's not working then, indeed, this President and the Republican majority from the last Congress, we do have a plan B. But we're not gonna give it to the enemy!"

Could this be the same "plan" Conrad Burns last year so selfishly concealed from Jon Tester? Unfortunately, Burns is no longer available and his Senate website is gone. Do you suppose he left a contact number?

Can you help us out?
