Barack Obama has introduced a bill that requires the withdrawal of troops in the near future, with complete withdrawal by March of 2008. The timetable may be too slow for some, and too fast for others. Sen. Clinton has said she would consider it "irresponsible" for Bush not to have withdrawn all troops by the end of his term in January 2009. Obama is now recommending making it a matter of law that troops be out ten months earlier than that.

The debate among Democrats is clearly shifting more toward winding down the war. (Note that I didn't say it's "shifting to the left." Opposition to this war can no longer be described as a left/right issue.)

Sen. Clinton: Your move.
