Iraq Vote As Career Ender?

Lincoln Chafee, the only Republican Senator to vote against authorizing the war in Iraq in 2002 is now a former Republican and former senator from Rhode Island (corrected). But he's supporting Barack Obama in the presidential campaign and, in a new book, Chafee doesn't hold back on what he thinks about his colleagues who supported the war in 2002.

"Being wrong about sending Americans to kill and be killed, maim and be maimed, is not like making a punctuation mistake in a highway bill," Chafee writes in the book previewed by the AP. "They argue that the president duped them into war, but getting duped does not exactly recommend their leadership. Helping a rogue president start an unnecessary war should be a career-ending lapse of judgment, in my view." Chafee's book is titled, "Against The Tide: How a Compliant Congress Empowered a Reckless President."
