Disclosure: I worked for the Lamont campaign doing web design and production and some writing for the official blog (from 9/5/06 to 11/07/06).

Over in New York, a challenger to a big-name incumbent senator who wants to introduce an anti-war resolution at a state Democratic convention today is being stifled by party leaders who want to prevent any discussion of Iraq in order to protect the out-of-the-mainstream views of this sitting senator.

Sound familiar?

It's not that Hillary Clinton has to go, or that her challenger has any shot of pulling it off (the former is a debatable question, the latter really isn't). It's that the Democratic party across the country is trying to prevent discussion on the most important issue facing this nation in order to cover for incumbents whose views don't even represent their constituents. And that's both morally unforgivable and politically stupid.
