Iraqis may finally get a new government

Took long enough...geesh. Listen Iraqis, when choosing a government you can't be thinking it through, weighing the options and everything. You just got to do it, on a whim. Trust me, I'm American.

Iraqi leaders on Friday ended a months-long impasse in forming a new government and agreed on a new candidate for prime minister, an inexperienced Shiite Muslim known for his harsh criticism of rival Sunni Arabs.

My crystal ball tells me this will not go over well. And the magic 8-Ball says "Outlook not so good"

The potential end of political paralysis was a small step for a nation that some believe already has descended into civil war and a government that remains divided along ethnic and religious lines.

One small step for the Iraqis, another giant leap into chaos.
