What does Saddam's capture mean for Dean and Dems?

I am very interested to see how Dean will attempt to spin this story to his favor. He's running on the instability of Iraq. The country is not stable, but this is huge blow to the insurgents, and thus to Dean's campagin.

Also, what does everybody have to say about the UN now? Did the sanctions do this? No. Bush's will power did it.

One more thing, I found France's statement about the capture very interesting. "It's a major event that should strongly contribute to democracy and stability in Iraq and allow the Iraqis to master their destiny," French President Jacques Chirac said in a statement. Isn't Chirac glad that Saddam was captured? I don't think he is.

Dean's chances of getting elected just took another fall. I'm looking for his spin on this one too. Dean is the candidate that has been outspoken about his opposition to the war which has removed Saddam from power and now has brought him to justice.

I've checked the campaign sites of Clark, Dean, and Kucinich. All of them are extremely pleased with the news and, especially, proud of our troops. They do not feel that this is the final chapter. I don't think anyone does--Bush doesn't either.

a LOT can happen between now and november. Jobs, the economy, may go continue to go up, or, may go back down. Insurgence may stay the same, or it may go back down. There may even be another terrorist attack on US soil in revenge. It ain't over till its over. Personally, I want John Kerry to win. Either that or Clark. Anyone but Bush or Dean

"They do not feel that this is the final chapter."

It certainly is not the final chapter, which keeps Dean's and others electoral chances from going from luke warm to stone cold.

Absolutely. I just went to his site. Good grief! They are partying! Well, not literally, but they are very pleased. Admittedly I have differences with Lieberman as per policy particulars but I respect his honesty and character a great deal.

Last time I checked it was the US Armed forces and Coalition forces that did it. Anyway, by no means is this a gaurentee that violence will end in Iraq. Troops will continue to be ambushed and killed. As a matter of fact, there was a report on the news yesterday that many Iraqi soldiers were quitting the army for various reasons.

I think the Dems will use this as an excuse to get out of Iraq quicker.

when you put enough troops into a country to look for someone logic dictates that at some point you will find him

this can turn out to be a victory for democracy in Iraq
IMO it would be rather senseless to claim this as a victory for anyone else

I do too. Bush and Co. are trying to be cautious about this, saying it won't end the violence in Iraq. In one way or another the violence in Iraq will continue to be an issue. No word on how it will play Peoria or any other place at this point. We will simply have to wait.

And once again Bush's handlers didn't want him to field any questions from reporters, something cowboy like may have come out of his mouth when they want him to be humble.

WildHoneyAlways,

Last time I checked, George Bush was the Comander and Chief of the Armed forces.

One can always count on FYM to blame Bush for everything that is wrong with the world and to never give him credit when it is obvious that it is due.

So even humility can only come from his handlers?

Lieberman apparently will be coming after Dean very hard tomorrow night on Hardball on MSNBC.

Dean seems to be doing damage control today. He in fact praised Bush and said this is HIS day!
