The newly elected Democrat from Topeka, Kan., just came back from her first trip to Iraq without any answers.
Boyda, a freshman Democrat who called the Iraq war a mistake when she ran for office, said she continues to favor withdrawing troops but declined to give a specific timetable.
“I would not recommend any kind of a rapid pullout,” Boyda told reporters during a conference call. “There are no good solutions to this.”
Some of the folks in Boyda's district are a tad grumpy that she isn't calling for quicker troop withdrawals. Once she campaigned with the slogan "Had Enough?" Now, Boyda is seen as dragging her feet.
Is this a new found sense of responsibility, or is Boyda going back on her word to create change in DC? I don't think anyone has an answer to that, but we'll keep watching.Cross posted to Watching Those We Chose.
