"The Democrats need to realize that Bush is so far gone on Iraq, he’s not going to allow himself to be driven by what’s good for the GOP (which also happens to be what’s good for the country). So they’ve got to stop waiting for Bush to do the political math, and start offering their full-throated support to Jack Murtha.

And Republicans, particularly those concerned about getting their clocks cleaned in ’06, need to take a page from the Watergate years, and send a delegation of party leaders -- pick those not currently under indictment -- up to the White House to tell the president that the jig is up. In 1974, GOP leaders, including Barry Goldwater and Hugh Scott, convinced Nixon that it was time for him to get out of Washington. The question is, will anyone be able to convince George Bush that it’s time for us to get out of Iraq?"-Arianna Huffington on The Huffington Post. Arianna is the ex-wife of a Republican ex-Member of Congress, but I'm not sure they're going to follow her advice.
