Gillibrand speaks out on Iraq

Kirsten Gillibrand is taking incumbent John Sweeney to task for his unwavering devotion to the Bush agenda. She's running a TV ad, called "Disagree", where she disagress with the idea that "we're making good progress in Iraq." Gillibrand says, "I'll stand up to this President when he's wrong."

Gillibrand, like a growing number of Americans, is calling for a real timeline for withdrawing American troops from Iraq. She's willing to debate Sweeney on the issue and let voters make up their minds.

But Sweeney keeps quoting Karl Rove's talking points and hiding from a debate. You've got to ask, if Sweeney actually believes what he's saying then why is he afraid to debate?
