Tom Edsall writes this morning in the Huffington Post that there’s a real chance to defeat the war funding supplemental — something which has been the holy grail of anti-war activists during the Bush Administration:

To be certain of passage, the administration and House Democratic leaders need to be sure of 218 votes, and, without major surgery to the legislation, prospects of achieving that goal are currently dim.

We need 38 Democrats to vote "no" to stop it. Nine members have already said they will oppose it in its current form. But as Edsall reports, there is a furious Democratic whip operation underway right now to get anti-war Democrats to toe the line, and that many are considering abandoning their principles because of political machine pressure.

We’ve given money to members of Congress for years because they opposed the war. We urged them again and again to cut off supplemental appropriations. Listened to their speaches, worked on their campaigns, donated, held them up as leaders. If they buckle now, it means it was all just a scam. If they won’t hold this administration to the same standards that they applied to the Bush administration, it was all just demagogurery to be tossed overboard when their political advantage lay elsewhere.

Call them and let them know that this is the moment that their vote is meaningful, and that you’ll be watching:
