I would suggest that it was when the Democrats finally took the issue of Iraq seriously that the country began to take them seriously. And it wasn't because it was a "daddy issue." It was because it was the most important issue on the table. It still is.

It's long been frustrating how very serious people in Washington have, for years, believed that being seen as strong leaders on national security issues meant lining up behind George Bush and say "yes, sir." Leadership requires... leading.

People hate George Bush and hate the war. The public would be behind literally any possible course of action the Democrats choose to take to get out of there.
