Poll: Most doubt Dems have plan for Iraq[*1]
Though voters apparently embraced the Democratic mantra of changingcourse in Iraq, a majority of the public did not detect a clearDemocratic blueprint for ending the war. Fifty-seven percent of alladults in the AP-Ipsos poll said Democrats do not have a plan for Iraq;29 percent said they do. The poll of 1,002 adults has a margin of errorof 3 percentage points.
That finding strikes at the heart of a Democratic dilemma. The partyhas been of one voice in criticizing President Bush’s strategy for thewar but has been more equivocal on how to move in a different direction.
Welcome to reality, Democrats. It’s always easier to complain from the outside than it is to execute from the inside.
For the sake of our country, I hope you do the right thing. History will be the final judge.
