Which Came First?

Over at Election Central Greg Sargent quotes from a memo by Rahm Emanuel telling Democrats to stand their ground (in pertinent part):

We find ourselves in a strong position because the American people support our policy objectives and our plan for Iraq, especially as they measure up against the failures of the administration’s policies.

I suppose we could argue about whether we support the policies or the policies finally reflect what we want, because though we do support the policies, it is really the policies that finally fell in line with what the people have wanted, particularly the Democratic leadership's own constituency, for a long time. So good for Emanuel, Pelosi, Reid, but let it be said that if the nutjobs on this side of the blogosphere had not been pushing hard we might not even be here.
