Good News in Iraq
by

To its credit, the Washington Post ran an editorial yesterday touting new numbers showing declining civilian deaths in Iraq, and today a front page story co-authored by Thomas Ricks reports that Al Qaeda in Iraq may be crippled. To be sure, everybody should view these developments with a degree of caution, because in the past positive developments have been short-lived, followed by a sudden spike in violence.

With that said, it is worth noting that Iraq has been seen as a major liability for Republicans going into 2008, but nobody has really entertained what it will mean to Democrats next year if things really do turn around in Iraq, and the surge really is perceived as having worked.
