The Question

The right question to ask the overwhelming majority of Democrats and critics of the war in Iraq:

"Do you hope that the troop surge succeeds in pacifying Iraq and giving the country a chance?"

The smart ones, like Rahm Emanuel -noted in the post below by the Monk-, will hem and haw and complain that it's a loaded question. (By the way here is the link to the David Ignatius article cited by Tony Blankley)

There is really only one answer to this question whether or not you supported the war - essentially do you want to continue to see Iraqis and Americans die or not?

For those who answer yes, albeit grudgingly, here is the follow-up:

"Would you do what you can to help the President's effort succeed?"

I think you'll find that it's not Adlai Stevenson's party anymore.
