The more things change

As General Petraeus testifies on Capitol Hill today, Powerline gives us this snippet from Hillary Clinton’s appearance on CBS' Early Show with anchor Harry Smith:

SMITH: David Petraeus is going to come before this committee this morning. He's going to say, in more elaborate words than I will right now, that the surge is working. The number of attacks in Baghdad have more than doubled in the last two months. About a dozen U.S. servicemen have been killed there in just the last several days.

Do you think the surge is working?

CLINTON: Well, Harry, I think you just made a summary argument against the position that it's working.


Speaking of a Harry, we are just a couple weeks shy of the one year anniversary of this Harry’s exchange, from April 22, 2007:

CNN INTERVIEWER: "General Petraeus is going to come to the Hill...and make it clear to you that there is progress going on in Iraq...will you believe him?"

HARRY REID: “No. I won’t believe him because it isn’t happening.”

The more things change, the higher the willing suspension of disbelief is raised.
