First presidential candidate to say "get them out". Between that and universal health care, he's now my candidate*.
Here we go. Barack Obama is introducing binding legislation mandating the phased removal of combat brigades from Iraq to start in a few months, with the goal of getting "all" -- we repeat, "all" -- removed by March 2008. From a release just sent out by his campaign:WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) today introduced binding and comprehensive legislation that not only reverses the President's dangerous and ill-conceived escalation of the Iraq war, but also sets a new course for U.S. policy that can bring a responsible end to the war and bring our troops home.

Here's a winnable 2008 Democratic Ticket:
I think it'd be really smart to actually announce your cabinet before the election. I.e., this is who I plan to nominate, you're voting for the whole team.
i used to think that too. actually i still do. but the reason they don't do it is they alienate potential high level supporters who think that by supporting a candidate they might get a cabinet position.
I hate politics
