*As Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sam Nunn oversees all military projects, just as his counterpart Cong. Les Aspin does on the House side. Senator Nunn, a moderate Democrat, was regarded the Democrats best chances at winning the Presidency, and was urged to run in 1988. He opposed the use of military force on January 12, but was unable to convince a number of his moderate Democratic colleagues to give sanctions more time. When the war started, however, he closed ranks and called for support of the President.

Some in Washington were whispering that his initial opposition to the war may have been for political reasons. By calling for more time with sanctions, Nunn is able to satisfy many of the liberal activists in the Democratic party and well positioned politically if the tides of war had turned bad. However, many feel his opposition is deeply felt and that the Senator is too classy to say "I told you so" should the war turn sour. Regardless of his rationale, Sen. Nunn now finds himself hurt very seriously by this vote. Not only is he having to take the heat for his own vote, but many Democrats who sided with him are upset that he has not been more forceful in defending the position he talked them into supporting. Given the current opinion polls, a presidential bid now seems highly unlikely.
