Two thirds of Americans now disapprove of president Bush's handling of the Iraq war. But there appears to be a stabilizing in discontent: the numbers aren't that much worse now than they were a few months back. Americans are mature enough both to grieve for the U.S. and Iraqi casualties while understanding that wars always mean casualties. As to the future, the public is now evenly split on whether things are going in the right or wrong direction. Count me among the 24 percent who don't know for sure. I certainly hope that the political process will work in the end.
The WAR, still wildly unpopular -- um, hooray?
