If William F. Buckley can admit he's wrong, can't you?

William F. Buckley is bolting from the extreme right, divesting himself of the National Review. Bucky has always been, in my opinion, one of the more intelligent of the right and it's nice to see him regain his sanity (if slowly).

When asked about the war, he said: "With the benefit of minute hindsight, Saddam Hussein wasn't the kind of extra-territorial menace that was assumed by the administration one year ago. If I knew then what I know now about what kind of situation we would be in, I would have opposed the war."
