It Isn’t Going to Be Warner

At least not for me.

Virginia Gov. Mark Warner was on Face the Nation this morning, where Bob Schieffer asked him if he would have voted to authorize force in Iraq. Warner said this:

But I think the Democratic Party ought to get over refighting how we got into the war and, again, continue to press the president on what he hopes to do in terms of how we will finish the job.

and this:

I think we ought to focus again how we finish the job, not go back and refight how we got there in the first place.

This is a strategy that fails to hold public officials accountable for their actions. I’ll give Warner a point for saying “not all the senators had all the information,” but if glossing over potential criminal acts is his plan to get to the White House, he doesn’t deserve to be there.
