I stumble upon this article and although the premise I think has some validity I don't think that their still a major public support for the war still.

Yes some considerable progress has been made in Iraq on the past couple of month but not to the point that is going to become less of an issue in the coming elections.

What I do agree with the article is that some democrats presidential candidates have been so invested in defeat in Iraq that it will be a huge blow to some of them if Iraq continues in this direction, specially for Obama, and at least and republican candidate and that would be Ron Paul.

The flip side of that is that if Iraq becomes a non issue as hard that is that to believe right now, then that would mean that attention would be directed to the american people and our needs, how about that for a change?
