RE: Surprise, Surprise

I think there’s another element to the Democrats’ flip-flop on fully implementing the recomendations of the 9/11 Commission. Pretty soon, the recomendations of the Baker-Hamilton group will be made public, and the Democrats will be pressuring the White House to accept the group’s recommendations as if they were gospel. If the Democrats have decided that they can pick and chose among the 9/11 Commission’s recommendations, it makes it more difficult for them to argue that President Bush has to embrace all of the Iraq Study Group’s suggestions.
