Nancy's taking the high ground...! Hurray...!

she must be totally confident of the pending vote tally...
In remarks to be delivered later today, Rep. Nancy Pelosi will say that the non-binding resolution disapproving of the escalation in Iraq now being debated in the House of Representatives signals bringing the troops home.

House Concurrent Resolution 63, which expresses support for America's military and disapproves of the president's stated plan to increase the number of troops in Iraq, is expected to pass by a wide margin today. A significant number of Republicans are likely to vote for the non-binding measure.

In prepared remarks received by RAW STORY, the Democratic Speaker of the House says that "The passage of this legislation will signal a change in direction in Iraq that will end the fighting and bring our troops home."

she's jumping out in FRONT of the train, not something the dems have done much of, if at all, over the past six years... she's also exercising that most elusive and rarely seen talent called LEADERSHIP... if she and her team have done their work and gotten the requisite ducks in a row, including doing republican arm-twisting, AND she feels confident enough of the upcoming vote outcome, then saying what that vote portends, namely that we will see troops coming home from iraq, is inspired leadership... and, if she's wrong, she will take a fall like none have ever seen... either way, i salute her, and, for those who follow this blog, my salutes are as rarely seen as leadership in government...
