Democrats to End War

A commenter on another blog, in response to my comment that I would not vote for Clinton, said the following,
it makes you a McCain supporter by default. You can argue otherwise, but you'll have to argue over the sound of bombs falling over Teheran.

...but if you don't vote for a Democrat, you might as well be voting for 100 years of war...

My response is this, not if Congress does its job, even if McCain were to be elected.

The AUMF was passed by a Congress in which the Senate was controlled by the Democratic Party. It has been funded for over a year by Congress in which both houses are controlled by the Democrats.

And yet Democrats keep pretending that all we have to do to end the war is elect a Democrat, any Democrat at all, as President. This when both Democratic candidates have said that Iran is highly dangerous to us and that "all options are on the table" in dealing with them.

All of this heated rhetoric about who we will elect as President but we will, pretty much without discussion, re-elect all of the same people to Congress. Including Nancy Pelosi, who unilaterally rewrote the constitution by declaring that "impeachment is off the table."

Nuclear bombing is on the table, but removing a rogue President is not.
