Democrats Flip-flop on Iraq, Again

They now say it may take years before we can withdraw. From the NY Times:

John Edwards, the former North Carolina senator, would keep troops
in the region to intervene in an Iraqi genocide and be prepared for military
action if violence spills into other countries. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
of New York would leave residual forces to fight terrorism and to stabilize the
Kurdish region in the north. And Senator Barack Obama of Illinois would leave a
military presence of as-yet unspecified size in Iraq to provide security for
American personnel, fight terrorism and train Iraqis.

I'm beginning to think we should stop criticizing the Dems and start praising them. Though often reluctantly, they've pretty much given the President everything he wants in the War on Terror, from Wiretapping to the Surge, even after they became the majority in Congress.
