Unlikely to soothe

Could be an easy thing for Senator Maria Cantwell to do. With a clear majority (55% or more in recent poll) among Americans in disapproving – now – of the nation’s entry into Iraq and of its ongoing effort there, might be easy for minority senators like Maria Cantwell to “solidify the base”, renounce the entry into the war and urge immiedate troop withdrawal.

She han’t. Her statement Wednesday on Iraq doubtless was ment to soothe the distressed, but it gives little ground and seems unlikely to do so.

    Cantwell barely won last time, and she has done little to impress most of the voters in Washington. McGavick is well-funded, knows Washington politics, and has a base in King County with his successful tenure at Safeco. He is a force to be reckoned with and has a real shot at unseating an unpopular Democrat.
