Road Signs in Iraq

Over at Abu Muqawama, Dr. iRack reads coverage of the security situation in Iraq the New York Times and The Post, and provides a great laydown of the key points on the road ahead. He covers signs of progress (violence levels down; Iraqi security forces improvements; Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's improvements, and increasing oil revenues for Iraq), caveats, and near-term dangers to be wary of. I agree with his analysis, and am cautiously optimistic about the progress noted in the reporting.

Being a pre-WaPo reader of your blog and want to charge you with Obama bias in your posts - this post calls out for a redux, ie you don't think you're a little restrained here? Isn't the fact that there is good reason to be 'cautiously optimistic' cause for more, shall we say, enthusiasm? Or are you conflicted because if your guy was in the White House we would have pulled out a couple of months ago, leaving god knows what in our wake?
