On Iraq, Bush's victory on war funding masks an uncomfortable political reality for the president: the war is growing more unpopular by the day, and all signs point to a September date by which the GOP will be fed up. The Los Angeles Times' Julian Barnes has military leaders "seeking ways to redefine success" because they are "increasingly convinced" that most of the political goals laid out for the Iraqis by the president won't be met. (Would the Bush administration be talking with card-carrying members of the "axis of evil" if officials weren't worried?)
