Do you actually think it matters that Congress voted yes on military action? It doesn't. It's a formality that has no consequence on anything. Congress knows that, so they may as well just go along with it, since it's going to happen anyway.

Ok - a far leftie who neither smells like poo nor is full of poo:

R Byrd slammed the Democrats for having no backbone, and of course voted no.

It sucked, not because I disagree on moving against Iraq if the UN fails, but the availability of preemptive strikes against any country in the future.

Not George Lucas:

Actually it does matter because this is a democracy not a dictatorship. Also, the elected officials had to be mindful of the general feeling among voters when they cast their votes with elections only a few weeks away. This is what the majority of Americans feel is the right policy. That is why support for the resolution was so overwhelming.

After all these people saying how Bush does not have this support and that support from this group or whatever and now Bush has the majority support of the American people and may possibly get UN approval as well. After all the ranting of people saying he did not have these things, and now finally gets them, suddenly it does not matter to them. Why did they bother to rant in the first place?

Imho it matters because GWB can raise the presure on the UN (irelevance).

The 2nd consequence is that GWB dosn't have to ask for Congress permission for a war anymore.
If he dosn't care about UN rules he could start war now.

But in the end it's not surprising at all. Imho GWB uses war to run an election campaign as Gerhard Schroeder used Pacifism.
Both play with the fear of their people to get some more votes.
