Baker/Hamilton Commission Should Provide Ideas for Iraq

In Tuesday's election, the American people made it plain that they want a change in direction -- and nowhere is this more needed and more true than in Iraq. The Administration's prosecution of the war has been plagued with serious flaws from the start and Secretary Rumsfeld's resignation will, I hope, signal the President's willingness to re-evaluate the Administration's course. The soon-to-be-released Baker/Hamilton Commission report should give the Administration and the new Congress fresh ideas on how to bring the conflict to an end.
