Kerry & Edwards are Caving in to the Editors of The Nation magazine on Iraq. But will Hillary Clinton continue to Stand Her Ground Against Them?

The Nation's current editorial throws down the gauntlet against Democrats who refuse to support the speedy withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq. The editors write:
Senator Clinton also faces mounting criticism from liberal activists.
Two weeks ago, her New York colleague, Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, said on the Meet the Press that he didn't regret his vote for the Iraq war resolution (as Kerry has done) because "my vote was seen and I still see it as a need to say we must fight a strong and active war on terror."
For now, Sen. Clinton stands with Schumer, who, unlike Kerry, has yet to buckle to the withdrawal crowd on the left.
