The longer Byrd draws this out the more time it gives the democrats to shift the debate from Iraq and Homeland Defense to the Economy. What we need is the debate to go on, for people to see how their Senators feel about Iraq, if the voters do not know how their Senator is going to vote until after the election, they can not take it into consideration.

If Byrd stalls this out until next week .... IT WILL HELP US NOT HURT US...
They say Daschle is trying to pull Byrd in on this ....but Byrd won't listen..
Let's help Byrd keep the Iraqi Resolution on the table until election day.

That's a good point. But, again, as soon as the Senate votes on an Iraq resolution, they'll switch the discussion to their "sure win" domestic issues in the final weeks of the campaign. I'm not saying Republicans should encourage Democrats to drag-out the Iraq issue, but it's the focus on Iraq which is keeping "their" issues on the backburner.
