"War is a dire and serious matter, never to be undertaken lightly. I cast the 7th District's vote against resolution for war in Iraq and would do so again. I believe that it continues to do our nation great harm with its terrible toll of lives spent, bodies maimed, money wasted and enemies made around the world, all without real benefit to our national interests. We must get out and leave the resolution of conditions there to the people of Iraq."
-- Recently passed Representative Julia Carson (D-IN) in an interview she did with bilerico.com in 2006. Rep Carson strongly opposed the war.
