In an editorial in the LA Times, former Senator and Presidential Candidate George McGovern contested VP Dick Cheney's comparison of today's Democratic position on the Iraq war to the McGovern platform in 1972.
While the whole editorial is worth a read, this quote stands out:
It is my firm belief that the Cheney-Bush team has committed offenses that are worse than those that drove Nixon, Vice President Spiro Agnew and Atty. Gen. John Mitchell from office after 1972. Indeed, as their repeated violations of the Constitution and federal statutes, as well as their repudiation of international law, come under increased consideration, I expect to see Cheney and Bush forced to resign their offices before 2008 is over.
A prophetic view?
