Now that it's Clear we are Winning in Iraq

Such is the theme of Tony Blankley's latest article, suggesting that now that victory is in the air, Democrats are going to have to backpeddle on their criticism of the war. He suggests that Republicans not let them.
The leadership of the Democratic Party has, by their public words this spring, disgraced themselves for a generation. Republicans have the right -- and the duty -- to engrave in the public mind the springtime Democratic perfidy and cowardice in the face of the enemy.
Interesting strategy; but it only works if it turns out we are really winning in Iraq. This return to triumphalism however may be premature; because if things don't go swimmingly, well triumphalism may look somewhat ridiculous.
