A Question for Senator Hagel et al.

From Kate O'Beirne at NRO:
Rather than back a non-binding resolution of disaproval, why didn't the gutsy Senators, like Chuck Hagel, who are riding the surf of public opinion opposed to the troop surge and taking on a president with approval ratings at the freezing level vote against General Petraeus' confirmation? Their convictions hold that he has endorsed a wholly unjustified escalation and will be leading troops on a futile mission. They want a role in the conduct of the war and with the need to win Senate confirmation of Gen. Petraeus the Constitution has given them one, but they have taken a pass.
Indeed. Read the whole thing. (It's short.)

Spot on. Contrast that with Peggy Noonan's WSJ piece on Hagel's supposed courage How many more courageous people are going to go "wobbly" on us?
