On Thursday's Hardball Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) talked with Chris Matthews about the strong push from Dick Cheney and some members of the Senate -- namely Kyl and Lieberman -- to move closer to invading Iran. Matthews gets it, by passing amendments condemning Iran, they're tying to get other legislators on the record so they can come back later and use it to make the case for war.

Matthews: "...But these guys, Kyl - Kyl and Lieberman are not diplomats, they're hawks.

Webb: "Well, the Cheney element of the administration is well represented in the United States Senate."
