USA Today: Turnabout for Donnelly on the Iraq War

February 20, 2008

From the 2/17/08 edition of USA Today:

“I feel we’ve made progress, and the other part is I feel we can see an endgame in sight.

He offered a much different view five months before his trip, when he said on the House floor: “I fear this surge will not lead to an Iraq that will be stable over the long term, but will instead put more … American troops into harm’s way.”

Such turnabouts are rare.

Remember when Joe Donnelly repeatedly pledged not to be a rubber stamp for the Bush Administration’s Iraq War policies? At this point, considering Donnelly’s stated position, where is the difference between Donnelly and the Republican Party?

I believe we’d all like to hear about this “endgame” that Donnelly spoke of in the quote above.
