Bush has found his U.S. Grant, and Grant is taking Richmond.
This is something the democrats simply can't allow to happen. Their 08' hopes hinge entirely on failure in Iraq. Success can't be allowed because they're all on the record opposing the plan that might bring that success. Success implies the democrats lack any kind of judgment when it comes to weighty decisions of state and war.
That's not a good place to be. The public would notice that, and appears to be starting to notice, even with the MSM spinning like gyros. Americans like to win when they can. Petraeus is showing us how it will happen and that's got the dems pissing their pants.
What all this means is the democrats are looking real hard right now for any scandal they can hang on Petraeus that is serious enough to remove him. Bank on it. There will be a big scandal, phony and fabricated through and through, before this year is out.
The good thing is, Petraeus is not a moron and undoubtedly knows its coming. He will be doing everything in his power to purge the potential political saboteurs in ranks and have them relocated to another theater.
