The most immediate effect could be to increase the pressure on liberal activist groups and Democrats, who have focused this year mostly on other issues, to challenge Bush more forcefully on the war.

'It has gotten people back in the fight,' said Eli Pariser, executive director of the political action committee associated with the liberal 'What we're seeing is a lot of people who have thrown up their hands recommitting themselves.'"
