How you can tell Gitmo is not a good issue for Dems

This headline in NY Times gives a clue:

Guantánamo Thorny Issue for Democrats on Committee

Then later in the story:


For Republicans, the mission was simple and direct: defend the military's detention center at Guantánamo as humane and deserving of admiration throughout the world.

For some Democrats, the task was more complicated: to praise the patriotism and work of the vast majority of military personnel at Guantánamo, while raising questions about abuse of detainees.

Apparently some have learned what Durbin learned the hardway. In a debate over treatment of the enemy, it is not a good idea to be on the side of the enemy.
