Let's get a substantive discussion going on the issues that separate the Democrats (might be a welcome departure from the mud-slinging).

From the Contra Costa Times article on these televised appearances:

All three Democrats criticized the Bush administration's handling of the Iraq war but offered different solutions.

Filson said it's "irresponsible to get out now," Thomas wants to "start immediately pulling troops out" and McNerney suggests "a public timetable for withdrawal."


Thoughts?
