"A Sense Of His Soul"

Via WaPo, a Putin-redux moment:
Bush spoke for almost two hours with Maliki yesterday by videoconference, half of which was just the two of them and translators.

Maliki pledged to Bush that he will announce the deployment of three additional Iraqi army brigades to help secure Baghdad, U.S. officials said. The Iraq commitment would be in the neighborhood of some 4,500 troops, according to their brigade strengths.

After a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel yesterday, Bush told reporters he had a good conversation with Maliki. "One thing I was looking for was . . . to determine whether or not he has the will necessary to do the hard work to protect his people," Bush said.
I just got more pessimistic.

This constant refrain of having "the will" to "complete the mission" by members of the right wing is bringing to mind visions of der fuhrer. (shudder)
