Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for July 29, 2006
George W. Bush: So what's my endgame here? Man: Very simple, sir... you wait out the current flare-up and hang tough in Iraq for the next 2 1/2 years. Then your successor has to decide whether to cut and run. If he does and chaos ensues, then it isn't your fault. But if he stays put and democracy takes root, you get all the credit. Bush: Man, I'm smart! Man: Yes, sir. History'll phone this one in.
