Who McNerney is waiting for

The "moderate" GOP'ers that McNerney is hoping will end the Iraq war oppose and despise all things related to "timelines", right? Well, what if the timeline for withdrawal is conveniently based upon the US election calendar?
A small group of Republicans facing election fights next year have rallied around war legislation they think could unite the GOP: a call for an end to U.S. combat in Iraq, but not until President Bush is out of office.

The legislation was deemed essentially a nonstarter by Democrats Friday and underscored the difficulty Congress has in striking a bipartisan compromise on war policy. What attracts Democrats has repelled Republicans and vice versa, making it impossible so far to find a middle ground.
Once again, I'm obliged to remind Jerry of the character and mindset of the people he hopes will end the Iraq war.
