A fighting retreat

As Chuck, fights a nice but nasty Rear Guard action - the Main Body of the Democrat Farce seems to be retreating from the encirclement from Petraeur, Crocker, and Bush.
“We are trying to manage expectations that we can’t end the war today or next week or next month,” said one Democrat involved in the discussions. “We have to make sure everyone understands that.”

Said another aide involved in the process: “Despite the months of debate, and all the votes, and all the ads and everything, we have not been able to break the Republicans. They are still with Bush, and that’s the reality here.”
Sad when a good reality for the nation and millions of people is seen as a bad thing for a political party - but such are the wages of power-lust.
