Stories of the surge

Reason
by David Weigel

‘The people put us in power because they want an end to this war,’ Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich says. Kucinich is frustrated, and understandably so; He ran for president in 2004 on a crystal-clear anti-war platform, and was laughed off the stage by the city’s pundit class. He watched the Democrats wrestle Congress from Republicans in large part because of that war’s unpopularity. Two months later the White House is sending more troops to Iraq, he’s running for president on an anti-war platform, and he’s being laughed off the stage by pundits. ‘It’s almost as if the November elections never happened,’ Kucinich says. ‘The default position of the Democratic Party is to stay in Iraq. You win the election and then you take the war off the table? You promise not to defund the war, which you are constitutional [sic] empowered to do? I fundamentally reject that, and I will do everything in my power to stop this war.’ How much power does Kucinich have? Better question: Who actually has the power to contest the troop surge when Congress gets its next funding request in February?
