Matthews: David, do you believe the President is looking for an out from his doctrinaire policy of staying the course?

Brooks: Not really, no I don't. I think they're looking at policy options. One of those options is trying to replace the current government which seems to be doing nothing. The second option is some sort of federation which--Joe Biden has suggested as separating Iraq. A third option and by far the least likely is going in with more troops, So there's all different three options...We have much less control over Iraq than we did two or three years ago...

I guess all those elections didn't really matter after all.

Can you help us out?
