NBC's David Gregory also chose the Quds Force as his lead from the Presidential press conference but he followed up with Bush's shifting aspirations for the US military occupation in Iraq. Quoting the goal as "relative peace," Gregory observed that "he appeared to temper his definition of success" to countenance perpetual terrorist violence. Predicted the President: "Zero carbombings--it never will happen that way." NBC has a history of being interested in whether the conflict in Iraq constitutes a civil war, so Gregory quoted the President's confession that he is unable "to give you a first-hand assessment" on that question. Gregory summed up the President's policy thus: "I can be eloquent--but all that matters now…is how events proceed on the ground."
Eloquence is an unprecedented addition to this President's techniques of leadership.
