...are going to be upset.
The leading Democratic White House hopefuls conceded Wednesday night they cannot guarantee to pull all U.S. combat troops from Iraq by the end of the next presidential term in 2013.
"I think it's hard to project four years from now," said Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois in the opening moments of a campaign debate in the nation's first primary state.
"It is very difficult to know what we're going to be inheriting," added Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.
"I cannot make that commitment," said former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina.
You are probably wondering - Didn't these guys just try to push through a bill that would bring the troops home from Iraq in nine months? Yet they are saying they can't do it on the four years of their first term?
Lucky that you have me to explain this. You see, the Dems in Congress don't give a rat's toenail about the troops or what happens in Iraq as long as the aftermath gets blamed on Bush. The plan is to force W to pull troops out before Hillary swears in and when Iraq goes to hell, well it's Bush's war.
But that changes when the Harlot of Babylon takes command. GIs in Iraq won't be packing up on January 20, 2009 at 12:01 pm. Instead, she will be actually trying to win it, and Code Pink will be told to go pound sand.
The sad irony is that a sure way to insure victory in Iraq is to elect Hillary.
