Not for Obama, but for a plan Obama laid out that the right has tried to shoot down time and time again:
Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki told a German magazine he supported prospective U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's proposal that U.S. troops should leave Iraq within 16 months.
In an interview with Der Spiegel released on Saturday, Maliki said he wanted U.S. troops to withdraw from Iraq as soon as possible.
"U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama talks about 16 months. That, we think, would be the right timeframe for a withdrawal, with the possibility of slight changes."
I wonder what the White House spin on this will be. Will they try to write it off as another "translation error", or will they secretly go into "overthrow Maliki" mode?
