Afghanistan Surge - Do You Know Why the President Said Yes?

Here’s what we’ll be wondering as we watch President Obama announce his decision on Tuesday to send additional troops to Afghanistan:
  • Why couldn’t he say no to the Generals?
  • Was he afraid of another fight with Republicans?
  • Does this doom his domestic agenda?
  • Do anti-war Democrats matter?
  • Is this another Vietnam?
  • How many will die?
  • Is Obama a one-term president?
  • What if it works?
Was the president intimidated by military strategists and conservative bullies?  Is he making an independent judgment regarding what’s best for our country?

Or both?
