It looks like the window of opportunity that the Democrats had for turning victory in Iraq into defeat is rapidly closing:

The violence has shifted away from American troops, who are suffering 60 percent fewer casualties this month than in the past year. and more towards Iraqi security forces and civilians. Part of this is because there are simply more Iraqi police and soldiers patrolling the streets and policing the neighborhoods.

Americans are increasingly serving only as advisors in many areas of Baghdad and no longer fight, which may explain some of the reduction, but the freqency of terrorist attacks overall is much lower, too.

For six months American and Iraqi forces have been sweeping Baghdad and surrounding areas and have cleaned out many Sunni terrorist strongholds.
