Fresh Air

From Robert Gates' nomination hearing today:

“Mr. Gates, do you believe that we are currently winning in Iraq?” Mr. Levin asked.

“No, sir,” Mr. Gates replied...

Mr. Levin said Mr. Gates’s remarks amounted to a “necessary, refreshing breath of reality.”
So will Bush - and, perhaps more importantly, Cheney - breathe the fresh air or will they continue to suffocate in their delusional world where the Iraqis are still showering us with flowers and greeting us as liberators? My bet is on the latter, but I've been wrong before...
