George C. Marshall where are you? Iraq needs you

Maybe what's really needed for Iraq is for President Bush to appoint a modern day George C. Marshall, to serve as point for the U.S. side of the fence, but not to serve as a MacArthur-style territorial governor. This would not be someone within the administration, but a retired, senior statesman to provide both ideological guidance and international leadership for "fledgling democracies". The idea is to provide moral and economic support, but stay out of the military security business.

Maybe "You Broke It, You Fix It" Colin Powell could fill such a role, although I'd prefer President Clinton.
