If Al Gore Had Won in 2000...

...this guy might have been our Secretary of Defense today. Just as a turbulance-tossed airline passenger kisses the ground when his plane lands safely, I kiss W's photo whenever a Clintonista opens its ugly mouth.

Time to Pull Out. And Not Just From Iraq.
Cambridge, Mass.

...Our best strategy now is a prompt withdrawal plan consisting of clearly defined political, military and economic elements. Politically, the United States should declare its intention to remove its troops and urge the Iraqi government and its neighbors to recognize the common regional interest in allowing Iraq to evolve peacefully and without external intervention...

John Deutch, deputy secretary of defense from 1994 to 1995 and director of central intelligence from 1995 to 1996 (in the Clinton Administration)

Yes, let's urge Iraq's neighbors to play nice when we high tail it out; that'll work.

I know: Let's get Berger and Albright to come to the Oval Office at around midnight. We'll order in some pizza and Diet Coke and before sunrise we'll all learn like Rhodes Scholars how to say "pretty please" in Arabic; problem solved.
