How do dems decide that? What is the criteria? How much talking should take place before action becomes the best option? Should talking continue indefinitely?
I'd also like to add, that even if the voting bloc of the dem party has balls, the rest of the world MAY not believe that's the case. The perception to the rest of the world (even according to your own VP) is that he will be tested due to the possibility that he is weak, and the Dem party is weak. And I'm not really trying to get panties in a wad here...Just believe this is probably the perception among our enemies of the Dem party.
I can tell you the criteria is not "We want to invade a country, we found a guy thats telling us what we want to hear about that country, quick lets invade under this pretense before people find out!"
