President Bush’s Coalition of the Willing has dwindled since its original strength in 2003. Of 14 major partners in the Coalition, eight leaders were defeated in elections, two stepped down, two were term limited, and two remained in office. This week, Bush will be hosting one of his few remaining allies, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili, to discuss “common efforts to advance freedom and security around the world.” Saakashvili’s trip will coincide with “the height of the war protests on Pennsylvania Avenue.”
