Better Bush ratings
I was afraid of this. Bush's approval rating on the conduct of the war has increased somewhat. 30 percent is still pretty pitiful, but it's better than the 22 percent he had last month. There are still substantial majorities who think the war was not worth the price and who want U.S. troops out within a year, which I don't think will happen. But this could give Bush just enough of a bump that he can sell the Petraeus plan in his talk tomorrow night -- though I have one friend, a war supporter, who's decided he's so pathetic he'll manage to screw that up too.
