Josh Marshall comments
on reports that Bush is likely to call for more troops to be sent to Iraq. He wonders:
Who's for this exactly? That is, beside President Bush, people who work for President Bush and John McCain?

. It means handing over the problem to the next president, and "therefore" Bush didn't lose the war. Nobody else matters.
That's all there is to it.
