Buried in the NY Times article "General Says New Strategy in Iraq Can Work Over Time," is a rare moment of candor from Hillary Clinton, which shows that by default, she is already firmly in the camp for the escalation: We know the troops are moving. We know that were not likely to stop this escalation." The full passage from the Times:
Anyone still for Hillary in 2008? That's right Al-Maliki! You'd better change or else! The enemy we're confronting is (substitute your word-of-the-week: adaptable,determined, ruthless, cunning.) Politicians like her are why people hate politicians. She is the Repulicans' dream opponent, so they can make her the next "voted against the war before I voted for it" punching bag.
We know this policy is going forward, said Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Democrat of New York. We know the troops are moving. We know that were not likely to stop this escalation. But we are going to do everything we can to send a message to our government and the Iraqi government that they had better change, because the enemy we are confronting is adaptable. (yesterday, NY Times, "General Says New Strategy in Iraq Can Work Over Time")

When 60 minutes commentator Pelley pointed out that it was his administration "that created the instability in Iraq", Bush replied that his administration, "took care of a source of instability in Iraq." When Pelley challenged Mr. Bush's answer by stating how much more unstable it is now, the President said it was not his decisions but "decisions [that] have [been] made" by, perhaps, Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy. All are part of the World of Wishful Thinking over which this president presides.
