Nothing more powerful than denial

From the TPMCafe Election Central Morning Roundup,
On a trip to Iraq yesterday by Senator Joe Lieberman (ID-CT), the troops he took questions from had one constant query to pose to him: "When are we going to get out of here?" A Connecticut constituent of the Senator, Spc. Will Hedin, said to McClatchy News, "We're not making any progress. It just seems like we drive around and wait to get shot at." Lieberman had his own take on the situation: "Overall, I would say what I see here today is progress, significant progress from the last time I was here in December. And if you can see progress in war that means you’re headed in the right direction."
