Quick - Someone call Ann Coulter!

Mark Brown is a columnist for the Chicago Times. His writings are of a decidedly liberal nature. However, he has recently written a column wondering if perhaps the liberal crowd was wrong and George Bush was right on Iraq. He writes;

...But on Sunday, we caught a glimpse of the flip side. We could finally see signs that a majority of the Iraqi people perceive something to be gained from this brave new world we are forcing on them.

Instead of making the elections a further expression of "Yankee Go Home," their participation gave us hope that all those soldiers haven't died in vain.

Obviously, I'm still curious to see if Bush is willing to allow the Iraqis to install a government that is free to kick us out or to oppose our other foreign policy efforts in the region.

So is the rest of the world.

For now, though, I think we have to cut the president some slack about a timetable for his exit strategy.

If it turns out Bush was right all along, this is going to require some serious penance.

Maybe I'd have to vote Republican in 2008.
It takes courage to admit that you might be wrong about something and I salute Mr. Brown for his intellectual honesty. If the Iraq situation successfully plays out, maybe he can chair the "Liberals for Jeb Bush 2008" campaign committee...
