    Of all the words that President Bush used at his news conference this week to defend his policies in Iraq, the one that did not pass his lips was "progress."

    For three years, the president tried to reassure Americans that more progress was being made in Iraq than they realized. But with Iraq either in civil war or on the brink of it, Bush dropped the unseen-progress argument in favor of the contention that things could be even worse.

    This used to be called the "limited, modified hang-out" strategy.

    Didn't work then, either.

    To my mind, that is the winning arguement right now on why we should not just pack up and leave.
