What would a benchmark of success look like?

Heard on a talk radio show today: A caller suggested that like the American political leadership is setting benchmarks for the Iraqi government to meet, the American people should set benchmarks for our elected leaders. His suggested benchmark: The President and Vice President walk down several blocks of a street in Baghdad without ruining their underwear.

Here's a little something from CBS. Andrew Sullivan suggests this wasn't shown on nightly news because it is a reality-check against the notion that the war for Baghdad is winnable, given the resources and tactics we are planning to confront it with.
