Iraq: Declare Victory and Go Home

Robert Novak of the Chicago Sun-Times has an Op-Ed piece posted in which he predicts that if Bush wins the election, he will order a quick pullout from Iraq. This would seem to make too much sense for a politician. The ploy used to end the Viet Nam war, declaring victory and pulling out, won't work any better this time than it did in 1975.

Novak also predicts after the election that Condoleezza Rice will be secretary of state, Paul Wolfowitz the defense secretary and Stephen Hadley the new national security adviser. We'll have to wait and see how good his crystal ball is.
