From The Note:
    One long-time Bush adviser tells ABC News "The President needs to set benchmarks for disconnected Republicans and independents. Folks need to see what gets us to light at end of tunnel" in Iraq.
How much you wanna bet Bush will spew the same bunch of stock phrases tomorrow night in his speech that he always uses when talking about Iraq.
    -We fight the terrorists in Iraq so that we don't have to fight them here at home.
    -Iraq is the central front in the war on terrorism.
    -The insurgents hate democracy and don't want us to succeed.
    -A democratic government in Iraq would be a defeat for the insurgency.
    -A democratic government in Iraq will help bring peace to the Middle East.
What we won't hear is anything new about when or how this conflict might end.
