Though the AP was careful to bury the details in a story about the suicide attacks of earlier this week, the political news from Baghdad is encouraging:

At the news conference announcing the political accord, President Jalal Talabani and al-Maliki were flanked by the leader of the northern autonomous Kurdish region, Massoud Barzani, and Shiite Vice President Vice President Adel Abdul-Mahdi.

The four men signed a three-page agreement they said ensures them a majority in the 275-member parliament that would allow action on legislation demanded by the U.S.

Talabani, a Kurd, said [Sunni Vice President] al-Hashemi refused the invitation to join in the new political grouping but “the door is still open to them and they are welcome at any time.”

Al-Maliki also called on the Sunni Accordance Front, which includes al-Hashemi’s party, to return to the government and heal a rift that opened when the bloc’s five Cabinet ministers quit the government.
