Breakthrough in Iraqi Politics

Here is some potentially good news, though not if you're against the war, from Yahoo/Reuters:

Iraq's top Shi'ite, Sunni Arab and Kurdish political leaders
announced on Sunday they had reached consensus on some key measures seen as
vital to fostering national reconciliation.
The agreement by the five
leaders was one of the most significant political developments in Iraq for
months and was quickly welcomed by the United States, which hopes such moves
will ease sectarian violence that has killed tens of thousands.

This is happening faster than I thought, but is very welcome. As I've said before, progress on the military front will automatically spread to the political side.
