I said here and elsewhere that the Democrats are pursuing a strategy wherein if they can get us to lose in Iraq, that they will win at the ballotbox.
Now it appears that "Momentum [is] shifting to [the] GOP in Iraq debate". (courtesy of Glenn) The Democrat's strategy of militarily losing is also becoming a political loser. Bush will make use of this, but it will be interesting to see if, when, and how strongly one of the Republican candidates will do the same.
Update: Ace says the Democrats are caught in a quagmire. Imagine that.
