5. Bush won't break. He won't even bend. He'll get his way.
The only way to end the Iraq war and to change policy in the Mid-East is to cut off funding, impeach or wait til Bush's term ends. (The proclivities of Dems is to sit & wait -- they call that strategy.) In the mean time, the GOPers WILL try to issue-frame the Dems as weak on defense, weak on security, weak on ideas, and weak in the gut. There's a good chance they'll succeed, maybe not in time for 2008, but for the long haul. The GOPers are looking way down the road to achieve permanent power.
