Sounding like a broken record here

I know I've been down this road before, but here it goes again: Which do we, as a nation, want? Do we want someone who sticks to their guns, even when they're wrong? Or do we want somebody who can't seem to make up their mind?

Okay, so it's probably not fair to cast either President Bush or Senator Kerry in this light, but it really does come down to this, at least in part. The President is headed down this path with Iraq and the economy and everything else, and it's not really doing us much good. After declaring "major operations over," we've still lost nearly a thousand military personnel in Iraq. If the President were to just admit he'd over estimated or under estimated or mis-estimated or screwed up, I think he'd silence many critics. And the Senator from Massachusetts... well, it does seem that he wants it all ways. But, he does draw a clear -- and correct -- distinction between the War on Terror and the War in Iraq. They are not one in the same, no matter what the current administration would have us believe.

I'd have to say, though, I'm not in favor of sticking to one track when it surely is headed to catastrophe. It's time to move this train to a different track. Please.
