Democrats Fracturing on Iraq Troop Funding

Well, that didn't take long.

Senator Carl Levin (D-MI), Chairman of the Senate Armed Service Committee, is now contradicting what Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has said.

WASHINGTON — The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee said Sunday that the Senate would not cut off funding for the Iraq war but would keep pressing President Bush for a settlement among Iraqi leaders to end the violence.

Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), appearing on ABC's "This Week," disagreed with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who said last week that he would co-sponsor legislation to cut off almost all money for the war in Iraq by next March.

"Well, we're not going to vote to cut funding, period," Levin said. "Even Harry Reid acknowledged that that's not going to happen."
Reid acknowledged that that's not going to happen? That's not what Reid himself said less than a week ago.

Looks like the more reasonable Democrats are starting to separate from their rabid frothing-at-the-mouth anti-war Democrats. This could be good or bad, depending on which side eventually wins. However, one thing it will be is entertaining, watching Democrats contradict each other and hopefully ending up in-fighting and getting nothing done.
