For Democrats, Afghanistan Policy Is Simple

Get re-elected. And distrance themselves from an unpopular direction, should Barack choose to go down that road.

Although Pelosi is waiting for Obama to propose a strategy, she seems more receptive to the creation of a smaller force focused on anti-terrorism operations on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, an approach reportedly favored by Vice President Joe Biden.

Reid has maintained a far more open posture and has refused to take a position until Obama lays out his long-awaited strategy for the 8-year-old war.

Harry stepped in it Tuesday with Pelosi at a joint briefing after meeting with the President, hugging up on Granny Botox McRictus and asserting that "'everyone' would support 'whatever' Afghanistan policy the president produces."

Don't think so Harry. Check out the bug-eyed reaction to Harry's statement at 0:14, after her visceral reaction to the snuggy.

Palomino!! Palomino!!!

Yeah, we'll see.
