Democrats Scramble To Respond To Disaster of US Victory; Kos Demands That Democrats Implement Bin Ladin's Prefered Foreign Policy

The war could be won, which is a disaster for the pro-defeat Democrats (and Chuck Hagel, of course).

No one forced them to take a position which would benefit them politically only to the extent America lost, and would cost them politically to the exact extent America won. They chose that, and they can live with that.

It seems they're now asking for "bipartisan" solutions on ending the war, but ending it (as usual) without their fingerprints on it and now without even strict timetables. "Willingness to consider bipartisan compromises" = "Looking for some political cover for their defeatist asses."

With a mixed picture emerging about progress in Iraq, Senate Democratic leaders are showing a new openness to compromise as they try to attract Republican support for forcing at least modest troop withdrawals in the coming months.

After short-circuiting consideration of votes on some bipartisan proposals on Iraq before the August break, senior Democrats now say they are willing to rethink their push to establish a withdrawal deadline of next spring if doing so will attract the 60 Senate votes needed to prevail.

Senator Carl Levin, Democrat of Michigan, said, If we have to make the spring part a goal, rather than something that is binding, and if that is able to produce some additional votes to get us over the filibuster, my own inclination would be to consider that.

Democrats would need to lure the 60 senators in order to cut off a likely Republican filibuster.

The emerging proposal by Mr. Levin and Senator Jack Reed, Democrat of Rhode Island, would still order the administration to begin pulling at least some combat troops out of Iraq, probably by the end of the year. It is not clear what other provisions the measure may include.

But Mr. Levin, who is chairman of the Armed Services Committee and who met Wednesday with Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader, said a compromise may be worth making. It would allow Congress to assert its own voice on Iraq policy, after falling short of that goal in most such votes throughout the year, he said.

"Please bail us out of this disastrous turn of events by making calls for defeat bipartisan and thus providing us poliitcal cover!"

Huh... interesting suggestion. Here's s better one: Suffer alone, bastards. I've never in my life seen a more craven, venal crew.

Meanwhile Kos rages that Hillary and Obama are too slow in endorsing the platform of Osama bin Ladin.

Don't worry, Pal. I'm sure they'll get around to it. They just have to focus-group the best possible way to say to the American people, "Osama bin Ladin has ordered us to surrender in Iraq, and he knows what's best for the American interest."
