Politics: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

SH*T! The pres vetoed the Iraq Bill--please raise your hand if you did not see this coming.

What does this mean? It was a game play by parties for political reasons. The Repubs can use the veto in the campaign saying that the Dems do not support the troops. The Dems will say, see, the pres does not want to get out and has no mstrategy for exit.

The Congress and the Pres will sit down and bang out a compromise, since an override is out of the question. My question is, why not do this in the beginning and avoid all the wasted time and resources? Because it would not have been politically advantageous to have done it in the beginning.
