Actually, the desires of the Iraqi people in terms of how long they would like us to stay could probably be answered by a good survey ... maybe even more accurately than a national vote. I would suggest that the Johns Hopkins group might entertain such a request, but I suspect that the possible answer would not suit their ideological requirements.

The trouble with a survey, beyond the obvious biases of the Johns Hopkins polls, is that they are not binding. The surveyed people don't have to be serious.

That's why so many of surveys have found majorities of Iraqis saying the Americans should go, but then a later question reveals a majority of Iraqis don't want the Americans to go now.

Let's pin this down. Dear Iraqis, exactly when would you like us to go? Vote on it.
