What a difference a year (and an election) makes

As I was listening to Chuck Hagel say that every Senator should go on the record as to where they stand on Bush Iraq plan, I found my mind drifting back to just 14 months ago.....

Let's go back to Nov. 2005, when the Republicans forced that acrimonious House vote on immediate withdrawal. (Remember, Jean Schmidt, Murtha?)
The idea was to force Democrats to go on the record on a proposal that the administration says would be equivalent to surrender.

What a difference a year and a shift of majority makes.
