Could it be that the administration — for all its fooleries and flip-flops — simply had the better part of the argument on Iraq?

Better, that is, than the Democrats?

That’s the argument I make in this new piece in Salon.

Let the hate mail commence!!!

P.S. For hawks who might feel overly cocky about all this, consider the following: administration Iraq-hawks had two real angles on Iraq policy. One was avoiding working through the UN. The second was opposing the uniformed military’s plans for a massive invasion force of a quarter million troops and supporting something closer to the so-called Afghan model. They lost both. Powell and the uniforms won both. For a prediction of all this from six months ago, click here.
