Iraq Study Group Press Conference on CSPAN

I love CSPAN and it's great to watch the press conference again this morning at the crack of dawn.

It must be interesting for the world to see us ask for the wisdom of our elders on this subject, in this youth-obsessed country.

An A-list panel of senior leadership, instead of Brittney, Jessica, Leonardo and Brad telling us what they think. It's a refreshing attitude.

James A. Baker, III (R)
Lee Hamilton (D)
Lawrence S. Eagleburger, former U.S. Secretary of State ;
Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Senior Managing Director, Lazard, Freres & Co. LLC;
Edwin Meese, III, former U.S. Attorney General;
Sandra Day O’Connor, former U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice;
Leon E. Panetta, former White House Chief of Staff;
William J. Perry, former U.S. Secretary of Defense;
Charles S. Robb, former U.S. Senator;
Alan K. Simpson, former U.S. Senator.
Panetta's eloquent discussion with the President pointing out the obvious fact that two countries are at war: this country is at war over policy, Democrats vs. Republicans, as well as Iraq being at war and all of this must end.
