Some people allow the bosses to set their agenda and others decide that they will organize the people and set it. This epitaph is defeatist nonsense based on a negative reading of the current situation and an overemphasis on the system and its candidates. We have to build an antiwar movement that isn't beholden to the Democrats, nont allow the democrats to play taps at its funeral.

After a long illness and a protracted vegetative state, the U.S.
anti-war movement finally died today; the joy to see president-elect
Barack Obama appointing Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State and Robert
Gates as Secretary of Defense was fatal. Its peace achievements have
been impressive; its stature is best measured by its indefatigable
support of the Democratic Party; its understanding of the peace business
has been an invaluable asset to Mr. Obama. Funeral services will be held
on 20 January, 2009 in Washington, D.C.
