Bush’s legacy is Iraq. If it is a thriving pro-western nation with a regular tourist trade 5 to 10 years from now, that’s his legacy, just like Truman with S. Korea... if it falls into chaos under a premature 0bama ordered withdrawal, he gets the LBJ Vietnam legacy.

Well, believe or not, I concur with your assumption of his legacy. My fear, however, is that Iraq will not flourish under Obama. It is like an infant which survived a late-term botched abortion; it is still breathing with a beating heart but it needs care and norishment to thrive. And, well, we all know how Obama feels about aborted but living infants.

At this point, maybe I’m trying to see the pony in the horseshit, but I wonder if our position in Iraq will actually be improved with 0bama. If McCain squeaked in, the bitter moonbats in Congress would have done everything they could to kneecap our Iraq policy.

Perhaps after being briefed on what’s really going on over there, 0 will see its importance to our overall national security and push this along to completion.
