First we had an election landslide against the Republicans, in which the Iraq war was the #1 concern of voters. Then we had an Iraq Study Group.

Hamilton—allegedly a Democrat. As chair of a previous Select Committee, he chose not to investigate Reagan or Bush I for their roles in the Iran-Contra scandal.
