Nancy Pelosi's Future Plans
If they win, Democrats will immediately reach out to Bush to find a bipartisan way to begin redeploying troops "outside of Iraq," Pelosi said. They will also apply pressure to disarm the militias, amend the Iraqi constitution and engage in diplomacy in the region.
"A Democratic victory would be in furtherance of reaching that goal. Absent a Democratic victory, we'll be there for the next 10 years,'' Pelosi said.
And do the troops want to come home before their mission is finished? We already know that Bush will never agree to it before the mission is done properly.
If it were as facile as you suggest here, Mme. Pelosi, all this would have been accomplished already. All that will happen if you insist on this, is that there will be a terrible civil war we'll all rue in Iraq.
This isn't a policy, it's a mantra - "bring the troops home, bring the troops home, bring the troops home."
UPDATE: Democrats are already dreaming the big dream - double impeachment and Pelosi becomes President in 2007. Here's a new post on the subject at Talk Left, and here's a vid on the same subject.
UPDATE II: Debra Saunders at the SF Chronicle has a profile of Nancy Pelosi, scarily deemed a moderate in San Francisco.
