Timetable is on the table.

Bush sent Condi Rice to Baghdad to nail down a draft agreement for withdrawal of American troops. It looks like the Iraqis have pushed for complete withdrawal by the end of 2011.

Nowhere in this article does it say that Obama has been campaigning on the idea because Bush and McCan't want a permanent presence there to keep an eye on Iran and potentially launch attacks (not to mention protect our oil interests).

Watch for the Republicans to take all the credit for making it happen (and they'll get it too, thanks to a sleeping press corps).

Another campaign issue stolen away from Obama.
