Be suspicious of anyone who breaks down a complex issue into two sides, whether a pollster, a spokesman for the administration, or a blogger.

As the story linked in the post notes:

"Other recent polling has found that when given additional options, many people favor a step somewhere in between having troops leave immediately and staying until the country is stabilized."

It also notes, "A year ago, 71 percent of respondents favored keeping troops in Iraq until it was stabilized."

In one year, that is quite a collapse in the "until stabilized" majority.

I'd really like to see the statements in which Democratic leaders like Dean, Reid, and Pelosi (let alone Rodham Clinton) are in favor of "immediate withdrawal." I must have missed them. But then I tend not to see the world through a polarized lens, and neither do most Americans outside the Republican Party's core.
