Apparently Republicans want to set one of those evil timelines we keep hearing about, and have it be based on the US election calendar.

WASHINGTON - A small group of Republicans facing election fights next year have rallied around war legislation they think could unite the GOP: a call for an end to U.S. combat in Iraq, but not until President Bush is out of office.

The legislation was deemed essentially a nonstarter by Democrats Friday and underscored the difficulty Congress has in striking a bipartisan compromise on war policy. What attracts Democrats has repelled Republiicans and vice versa, making it impossible so far to find a middle ground.

But they're moderate and serious!
