Sunday Roundup: Timetables

That was the big question (along with immigration and AG Gonzo) on this week's cast.

This Week: Speaker Pelosi and McConnell (R-KY, Senate Minority Leader).
Meet the Press: Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn) and Former Speaker Newt Gingrich.

The benchmarks are clearly a ploy to blame the Iraqi government and get out. Interestingly both Republicans in the Senate/House and the Democrats want them. Dems want a timetable. Reps. no. But the basic thrust of the entire Legislature--i.e. parties up for re-election is out.

The Blame Iraq meme is common across the aisles.
