House Democrat Whip: Good News in Iraq `would be a problem for us'...

The Washington Post published an interview with the number three ranking Democrat in the House, Majority Whip James Clyburn (d-SC) which had him admitting something most of us have known all along...that his party's leadership is invested in America's defeat.

In a video interview with reporters Dan Balz and Chris Cillizza, Clyburn, when asked `What if General Petraeus comes back in September with a positive report, responded " That would be a real great problem for us, I'll tell you."

While Clyburn said he personally hoped for good news from Iraq, his implication was obvious.

Clyburn suggested that Democrats wait until September's report before taking steps to force a withdrawal from Iraq. Even if his party's leadership takes his advice, look for a frenzied attempt to discredit General Petraeus between now and then.
