Winning In Washington, As Well As Baghdad

Good piece by Brendan Miniter in the Wall Street Journal today on the growing defeatist chorus in Iraq. Best line:

Of course, Bush will be giving a prime-time address tonight, but that's not enough. Few people who aren't political junkies will actually tune in, so we've got to keep a full-court press offensive on, one that's almost as important as the war on the ground; we've got to win this war in Baghdad, and in Washington, and on Main Street, U.S.A....
