Where They Stand on Getting Out of Iraq

From the Daily Kos via John Deeth's Blog, an all in one place list: how fast should we Get Out?

Hillary Clinton: Wants troops out before Bush leaves office in January 2009. 23 months.

Barack Obama: Issued plan for total withdrawal by March 31, 2008. 14 months.

John Edwards: Complete withdrawal of all combat troops from Iraq within 12-18 months. 18 months.

Bill Richardson: Total withdrawal by the end of 2007. 11 months.

Joe Biden: Withdraw most troops by the end of 2007, but 'maintain in or near Iraq a small residual force -- perhaps 20,000 troops' indefinitely. Kinda sorta 11 months, but not really.

Chris Dodd: No timetable that I could locate.

Wesley Clark. No timetable that I could locate.

Tom Vilsack: Immediate withdrawal. 'The war must end, and our troops must be brought home now, not eventually but immediately.' Immediate.

Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel: Immediate withdrawal. Immediate.

Vilsack, Gravel, and Kucinich, an unlikely trio to be sure, but currently my political "heroes"
