Brownback's with Biden

Brownback signs on to the Biden plan to federalize Iraq. Q. How will Republican primary voters respond? A. Probably by saying, "Now which one is Brownback again?"

P.S. ... In the article above, politics guru Larry Sabato tells McClatchy the exact same thing he told me when I asked a similar Brownback-and-Iraq-related question back in early February. All Republican candidates, Sabato says,
have to stick with Bush but leave enough daylight so that if somehow they get the nomination they'll have a prayer of winning in November.
Presumably this is why Brownback has been so half-hearted about distancing himself from Bush policies, even those, like the troop surge, that he's on record opposing.
