Giving Ground on Iraq Money

"The Decider" has decided to become "The Compromiser" on paying for the Iraq War. President Bush signaled he'd be open to setting benchmarks for progress in Iraq to get money for the war there.

"It makes sense to have benchmarks as a part of our discussion on how to go forward." -- President Bush, May 10, 2007, on his willingness to compromise with Congress over war funding
Democrats offered up the benchmark plan after the President vetoed a $122 billion war spending plan earlier this month. (Chicago Tribune)
