Democrats Can't Make Guarantee on Iraq Troops

Ha! They finally admitted it! We all knew this was going to happen and I'm glad that the they are now admitting that there is no way they can just promise to pull the troops if they're elected:

The leading Democratic White House hopefuls conceded Wednesday night they cannot guarantee to pull all U.S. combat troops from Iraq by the end of the next presidential term in 2013.

"I think it's hard to project four years from now," said Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois in the opening moments of a campaign debate in the nation's first primary state.

"It is very difficult to know what we're going to be inheriting," added Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.

"I cannot make that commitment," said former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina.

Sensing an opening, Sen. Christopher Dodd of Connecticut and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson provided the assurances the others would not.

"I'll get the job done," said Dodd, while Richardson said he would make sure the troops were home by the end of his first year in office.
Don't believe Dodd or Richardson they are just clearly pandering. They won't be able to do it as well. Mike Gravel and Kucinich are the only ones I believe who would actually pull the troops no matter what the conditions on the look like.
