And look, it might be working too-- today the Senate is actually considering a resolution on having a phased withdrawl starting in 2008. We wonder if Harry Reid was finally moved to get off his butt and do something by the actions of the Board. Could be. We imagine a phone conversation like this between Reid and one aide:
Aide: Henry, I know you'd prefer not to make a stand on anything controversial, but Chris Daly and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors say you end the war now.
Reid: Oh on, not Chris Daly! Damn him! I guess we better get started on this-- to the Bat Cave!
And hell, with Berkeley moving to prosecute Rumsfield and the Washington State Senate working on a resolution, who knows? And if all else fails, they could have a bunch of people just pose naked on trees.
