Collins on Petraeus

Well, not Petraeus exactly. But the junior senator did talk to NPR about Iraq:

"I draw a distinction between a timeline and a deadline," Collins said. "I am for a timeline for changing our mission...What I've opposed is a precipitous withdrawal from Iraq, a hard deadline that is unrelated to what is happening on the ground."
Fair enough.

At least she's fessing up to her unwillingness to rein in the President.

Incidentally, can someone tell me who these nefarious "precipitous withdrawal" advocates are? It's not at all clear--unless Collins and other Republicans think twelve months qualifies as "precipitous."

If they think that, I really wish they'd mention it to the American people.
