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.
