GOPers up for re-election have come up with what they think may be a way to thread the Iraq needle

for a withdrawal of U.S. troops--but don't begin the withdrawal until after

Those trying to weasel on the issue are Sens. George Voinovich (R-OH), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Elizabeth Dole (R-NC), and Norm Coleman (R-MN), all of whom are up for re-election in 2008 except for Voinovich.
