    Of course the USA could move up the withdrawal date. Not up to today in the literal sense. But the schedule could be moved up. It is within the realm of possibility

    But that is not the polling data I am talking about. The polling data I am talking about shows why Afghanistan is not an issue in this year's election campaign. The fact is, Americans care much more about other issues. Americans seem to consider the Afghanistan question answered. The plan says 2014 and so be it.

    I understand you want it to be sooner. Well, that political debate has been lost. President Obama's plan is to withdraw in 2014. He is certainly not going to campaign against himself.

    Mitt Romney, he likes campaigning against his own words. unless Mitt Romney makes Afghanistan a genuine election year issue, then it will not become an issue.
