Bush's Iraq speech: not till 2007?

From NBC's Kelly O'Donnell and Elizabeth Wilner
Senior officials tell NBC News that the President's address on Iraq will more likely happen in early January.  Advisors had said they hoped to be ready before Christmas, but that was not "locked down," and also had indicated that the week between the holidays did not make sense.

This could make two Bush speeches that 2008 presidential candidates will need to work around as a slew of them plan their own campaign announcements for January, since the State of the Union is expected to take place later in the month.
