For one Democrat, war still a key issue

Democrat Tommy Sowers is an underdog in his election fight against seven-term Rep. Jo Ann Emerson in Missouri's 8th Congressional District, a sprawling, heavily-Republican territory in the southern part of the state.

He's also a veteran of Green Berets, and in a time when questions about jobs and the economy are consuming the political dialogue, Sowers is calling for an end to the conflict in Afghanistan and making the war a central plank of his campaign.

    I agree with Dan totally. The Rupublican Rep.Jo Ann Emerson is the exact symbol of what's wrong with America but I'm afraid that she's going to win,unfortunately. The people need to wise up bigtime!
