Obama: Get 'Em Out By March 2008


by Steve

Very impressive. Obama got the jump on the other two leading candidates by announcing this afternoon that he will introduce a resolution that calls for the redeployment of all American combat brigades from Iraq by March 2008. It is relatively specific and goes beyond anything Hillary has ever said, and sounds better thought-out than what Edwards has come up with. It will be a winner with the base and with independents, and will cause problems for Hillary.

But screw that; it's the right thing to do.

And for those of you who think that Congress cannot mandate troop redeployments, John McCain would disagree with you.

Hat tip to Greg Sargent and Glenn Greenwald
