Even the base is turning

Add Alabama -- again -- to the list of states where a majority of people believe the Iraq war wasn't worth fighting. The number of Alabamians in that category has increased by five percentage points in just one month. I should emphasize -- again -- that this sentiment comes in a very conservative state where President Bush received 64 percent of the vote in 2004.

The broad, growing national consensus on the Iraq war can suggest only one possible plan to Bush: Stay the course. Just don't call it "stay the course." People don't like the sound of it.
