Bush administration Iraq withdrawal deal?

News from The Associated Press: "BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraqi and U.S. negotiators have finished work on a draft security agreement that would see all American troops leave Iraqi cities by June 30 and the rest of the country by the end of 2011, Iraqi officials said Wednesday."
If this is agreed to the Iraq war issue would shrink in importance, and the 2008 election would presumably become more about domestic issues and, of course, the disturbing increase of tensions between the US and Russia over eastern Europe.
