WHAT WOULDN'T HE GIVE FOR ANOTHER IRAQ? (via Fred A. Smith):

Obama ally breaks with him on Afghanistan (Brianna Keilar, 12/01/09, CNN)

Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky was one of President Obama's earliest and most ardent supporters.

She served in the Illinois state legislature with him, and she supported his run for the U.S. Senate. But on the issue of Afghanistan, the president can't bank on the support of his longtime political ally. [...]

Schakowsky founded a group of congressional Democrats that dubbed themselves the Out of Iraq Caucus, and she says she worries that Afghanistan is set to become the next "quagmire."


Doesn't that require a first quagmire?
