    Barack Obama has won the argument on Iraq. The latest NBC/WSJ Poll, released tonight, shows that 60% of the voters think a timetable is a good idea, and 30% think it's a bad idea.

    The prime minster of Iraq says he would like our troops out by 2010, which is as close as he can come to implicitly endorsing Obama's withdrawl plan without being perceived as meddling in U.S. elections.

    In other news, the latest NBC/WSJ poll has Obama leading McCain 47% to 41% in a head to head matchup.

    But, even more astonishing is when Nader and Barr are added to the poll. In that case, Obama's lead jumps to 13 points, 48% to 35%.

    Not so astonishing to me, but them I am one of those who will not vote for Either of the Chumps and will "throw away" my vote on a 3rd party.

    I guess it all depends on how the questions are asked, huh?

    Well yeah. Why is this suddenly Obama's idea? Let's keep it in context. Al-Maliki called for a withdrawal by 2010 FIRST. I don't recall McCain ever saying we needed to be in Iraq any longer than necessary. Only AS LONG AS necessary.

    Suddenly it's Obama's plan?

    Does the media give head? if it does, Obama must be smiling ear to ear 24/7.

    Actually it is Obama's plan. Bush spokeschic Dana Perino could not even bring herself to use the word "timetable." She said "time horizon."

    Obama reminds me of Reagan. Events seem to be flowing his way.

    Who cares whose plan it is? Just bring the troops home, and keep our noses out of every other country's business ..... in the future.

    :idea: It's simple. So what's the problem :confused:

    We should bring the troops home, when the Iraqi government is stable. Leaving prematurely would waste all of the sacrifices made by US troops and the drastic changes made since the surge.
