By: John Amato on Sunday, October 15th, 2006 at 12:10 AM - PDT David Brooks has incredible access to the White House so when he said this shocker on "The Chris Matthews Show," I believed him. Bush is thinking about replacing the entire Iraq government. I kid you not. Video-WMP Video-QT Matthews: David, do you believe the President is looking for an out from his doctrinaire policy of staying the course? Brooks: Not really, no I don't. I think they're looking at policy options. One of those options is trying to replace the current government which seems to be doing nothing. The second option is some sort of federation which–Joe Biden has suggested as separating Iraq. A third option and by far the least likely is going in with more troops, So there's all different three options…We have much less control over Iraq than we did two or three years ago… I guess all those elections didn't really matter after all.What about all those purple fingers?
