How many licks does it take to get to the Bill Sizemore center of the GOP Senate primary?

Gordon Smith trying to pad his "moderate" cred:

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Gordon Smith, R-Ore., was one of two Republican senators voting against an amendment that would have removed a provision from an emergency appropriations bill that sets a timeline for U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq

Smith was joined by Sen. Chuck Hagel, a Nebraska Republican who has spoken out against the war.

"The Iraqis must govern their country and American forces must be positioned to fight Jihadists," Smith said in a written statement.

The amendment was rejected, with 48 senators voting in favor and 50 voting against it.
