If the Surge proves successful in Iraq, will you still vote Democrat?

For anyone out there who is considering voting Democrat this upcoming presidential election solely because of Bush's performance in Iraq: Will you still vote Democrat if the Surge proves successful in dramatically stabilizing Iraq? If you vote Democrat, would you want a Democratic president to withdraw the troops from Iraq? Would you like to go with an Obama plan of unilaterally invading Pakistan? I would love to get some clarity from Democrats on this issue.

Thanks for the comment. Bush comes across as somewhat of an idiot, but for the large part, he has shown our enemies that America will do what they say, instead of taking the UN path of writing 'strongly worded letters' to dictators. And, when it comes down to it, he got very similar grades to Gore, if not slightly better, and better grades and a higher IQ score than Kerry. Now, in terms of us being the most hated people in the world (because of Bush, you allege), how can you explain Albania's overwhelming praise for President Bush (they are mostly Muslim), or the election of a pro-American president in France? The people who hate us always have hated us, but not because of Bush. Now others around the world at least saw a president that acted on his words, instead of writing strongly worded letters that intimidated no one. Finally, if Hilary gets elected, she will end up more hawkish than you might think. She will say whatever she needs to in order to get elected, but she will not pull the troops out of Iraq- she is smarter than that.

I will vote for someone who will get us out of Iraq because I dont think we ever should have gone into Iraq in the firs place. I dont care if the next president is republican or democrat as long as they are against the Iraq war.

Thanks for the comment. Hypothetically, is there ANY success in Iraq that will cause you to come to the conclusion that the Iraq War was a good thing after all?

I think I am still a registered Democrat, but I stopped voting the party line years ago. I vote for the person, rather than the party. Generally I prefer to vote Libertarian, since protection of our Constitution is paramount in my belief system. I haven't decided on my vote yet for president though - I do know I will NOT vote for any person that will continue troops in Iraq or continue to invade other countries.

Thank you for the comment. If nothing else, you seem consistent, which is admirable, even though I believe in this global world, military action is sometimes warranted and necessary. Will you vote for anyone who continues to have troops anywhere, such as South Korea, Japan, Germany, etc. or would you want those troops to also come home to America? -ConservativeArtist
