He's No Hillary

While Hillary is getting the stuffing knocked out of her as she travels around the country by Democrats demanding that she apologize for her 2002 vote to authorize the war in Iraq, the most prominent Democrat in the Senate says he has nothing to apologize for:

As he prepares to lead Senate Democrats in the debate on President Bush's Iraq policy, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada says he has no second thoughts about his vote in 2002 authorizing the president to go to war.

"The evidence at the time was persuasive -- especially if you go back and look and see what Secretary of State Colin Powell did at the United Nations," Reid said Tuesday.

"We've learned since then that the evidence was manipulated," he said. "So the answer is no. I'm not going to apologize."

Can Hillary get away with the same line? I doubt it.
