An encore performance by the Democrats of the 110th Congress.

They can't quite admit they don't want to help achieve victory in Iraq with a surge of troops, so they'll vote to fund it, and then pull an John-Edwardian turn-around just in time to run for office again. That way, they get to have it both ways without having to stand up for either position when the going's rough.
