When it comes to Afghanistan it is pretty clear the political tables have turned for President Obama. 


Independent Senator Bernie Sanders, who usually votes with the Democrats, signalled on “This Week” that he couldn’t support the President’s troop increase:   “I have a real problem supporting 30,000 or 40,000 more troops and $100 billion more a year for that war on top of what we’re spending in Iraq,”
 
But Republican Senator Lindsey Graham is standing by the President.   
 
Will enough Republicans join Graham to make up for the Democrats who won’t support the President on this one?
