Dean Barkley on Homeland Security
Independent Senate challenger
A: Do not support. We need to withdraw from Iraq and stop being the World's policeman.
A: Support. We are giving up far too many civil liberties in the name of security.
Barkley was one of a handful of centrists that voted to kill a Democratic amendment that would have stalled the Homeland Security bill, then traded his support for the bill for a pledge from the Bush administration that Minnesota wouldn't have to revamp its successful welfare program.
Barkley plans to point to his brief tenure in the Senate as proof he already knows how to work there. "I've got a short track record, but look at what I got done," he said Tuesday.
