BloggingHeads.tv has a debate about putting our presence to a vote in Iraq. Make it a referendum on our presence there and once voted upon will not be revisited for a few years (Jonah says 5). I think this is pure brilliance. It would put an end to the question of whether we should stay. The Iraqis would vote in their best interests. If they think it's best we left, I'd be happy for us to come home but only if we're asked to leave. Leaving on our own accord now would be quitting. Leaving b/c we're told to is resepecting the sovereignty of Iraq. Either way it goes, the Democrats lose. If we came home they'd be crowing but they still wouldn't have any ideas. If they asked us to stay they wouldn't have anywhere to go.
