Brendan, this seems like a good opportunity for a political scientist to analyze the implications of a presidential statement. I’m curious to know what you think this statement says about overall GOP unity, the relative ability of the WH versus Congress to set the tone of political discourse currently, what the WH hopes to achieve by coming out with this statement now, how the Democrats are likely to respond and/or exploit this position. Putting aside the potential motives behind the content and timing of the President’s remarks, do you see this statement as having a positive or negative impact on future debate about Iraq?
