Sticky position…

Howard Kurtz does a good job outlining the trouble some Democrat presidential candidates may have with their votes in support of Bush’s position on Iraq. This situation is similar to one I discussed recently–a truism of presidential campaigning–that you win primaries on the wings and the general election in the middle. This might present one of the Democrats with a good opportunity to forego prognosticating and maneuvering based on an imperfect understanding of a war’s potential effects and stick to principle (whatever that may be).
