What Would FDR Do?

Kevin Drum, responding to Joe Lieberman's suggestion that George W. Bush is closer to the "hawkish internationalism" of past Democratic Presidents, asks the essential question:

"Given their actual records, does anyone seriously think that FDR, Truman, or JFK would have invaded Iraq if any of them had been president after 9/11? Anyone?"

Anytime I hear people suggest there is no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans I always come back to this. Not even our most hawkish Democratic candidate for President would have gone into Iraq in response to the attacks on 9/11.
