[GERGEN - says President Obama has decided to give his speech about the war in a very divided country.] [BRAZILE - says Obama has to outline the mission: what the troops & the civilians will do & what the war will cost; outlines what he can tell war-weary Democrats & Americans; comments on Representative David Obey's suggestion of a war tax.] [CASTELLANOS - suggests politics will stop at the waters edge in this case if Obama can explain the importance of the mission & purpose.] [GERGEN - says this has become so polarized.]
