OpinionJournal - Wonder Land: "Mr. Biden and other of his Senate colleagues now want the administration to provide specific 'benchmarks' and goals and come before Congress to issue monthly reports on their progress. He calls this 'a new compact between the president and Congress.' Setting aside the state of the current compact on judicial nominations, Social Security and the budget, one question:

If under those terms Don Rumsfeld or any other administration official ever came before the Senate and acknowledged a miscalculation of any sort in this large enterprise, would Mr. Biden or the others accept the admission in good faith and build from it, or would they flog it as an admission of failure and proof of a Vietnam-like credibility gap?

I think the Bush administration does need help in Iraq. But the notion at this point in time that Mr. Biden or the Senate Democrats wish to make a good-faith effort to provide it strains, in a word, credibility."
