    I, for one, did not say Harry had a "change of heart".

    However, if Harry has been pushing a withdrawal bill, repeatedly, in the past, I have missed it.

    •  Well there have only been two bills (0+ / 0-)

      the first one was a timeline bill.

      The second time he didn't have enough votes to get past a filibuster and pass a timeline bill so he had to compromise with benchmarks. But he NEVER said he was giving up on getting out of Iraq or trying for a timeline. That's just an urban myth here. Like people don't understand how the Senate works. Sigh.

      •  thank you for this momemt of clarity (0+ / 0-)

        as for pelosi, the same (save for the filibuster-issue) held true too (regarding ending the war, not at all talking about impeachment).

        i just appreciate the objective recap of the trajectory.  thanks..
