Answer: Many fine answers. Check them out here.
Publisher's note: There was some disagreement as to whether or not the Pelosi/Reid Democratic congress was truly cowardly and corrupt. America Jones and joe think that this congress is aggressively pursuing the war policies of the Bush administration and is not acting cowardly on that score. I would simply reply that, in the case of this congress, being cowardly and corrupt go hand in hand. Many Democratic senators are taking bribes from major transnational corporations and members of the military industrial complex in exchange for their votes and for letting their lobbyists write the legislation. This is not brave. It is corrupt, albeit legal. At the same time, most Democrats in congress are afraid of taking any principled stand lest they be called weak or treasonous by the pundit class and corporate media. That is cowardice. Being brave is standing up to bullies, even when you are by yourself. Lately, Chris Dodd has shown some bravery but that is just a drop of rain in the middle of a severe draught.
