It took a while, but it’s nice to see a couple of high-ranking Democrats finally come to their senses:

Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle was ablaze with war fever. Daschle said: “This is a time to send Saddam Hussein as clear a message as we know how to send that we will not tolerate the broken promises and the tremendous acceleration of development of weapons that we’ve seen time and time again in Iraq.” [Former] Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said, “Month after month, we have given Iraq chance after chance to move from confrontation to cooperation, and we have explored and exhausted every diplomatic action. We will see now whether force can persuade Iraq’s misguided leaders to reverse course and to accept at long last the need to abide by the rule of law and the will of the world.”

Oh wait, that was in 1998. Nevermind.
