Dims not committed to victory.

That is the only conclusion that one can draw from this article.

Notice that Pelosi did not even caveat by adding that the Dims were even committed to winning the war. Her comment was:

Democrats should not seek a unified position on an exit strategy in Iraq,
calling the war a matter of individual conscience and saying differing positions
within the caucus are a source of strength for the party.

What if some Dims "individual conscience" is to see America, and in their eyes George W. Bush, defeated? The logical inference one can see is that it is perfectly probable that some Dims do not favor a US victory. There is not a single shred of evidence in the article that they at least grant that the US winning in Iraq is a good thing.

The entire piece shows how illogical the Dims are. Pelosi actually believes they will retake the House. Not very probable from my point of view. She must be looking at the low approval ratings Congress is getting. Of course Congress always has low approval ratings. In the Public Opinion class I took that was one of our first lessons. People Always rate Congress very low, but their Congressman very high.
