Is it worse to waffle, or to stay the wrong course?

Nancy Pelosi said that the Democrats will not have a party position on what should be done in Iraq:
There is no one Democratic voice . . . and there is no one Democratic position.
This strikes me as a bad idea, born of a craven desire to avoid stating a position that could later be used against them. Even if they can't currently agree what actions should be taken now, at least they could agree as to what goals the US should be working towards in Iraq, and then have a discussion as how best to achieve those goals. As it is, they just look like inert obstructionists, and it's hard to imagine a worse image for politicians.
