The Campaign In A Nutshell

The most important issue in Campaign ’08 is, as always, national security. Senator Obama is urging a risky policy of retreat and hope for the best in Iraq. Senator McCain favors victory there –a victory that is unfolding and which Obama’s inexperience and ideological rigidity would endanger. McCain’s comments on the campaign trail today sum up the key difference:

“Today we know Senator Obama was wrong,” Mr. McCain said at a town-hall-style meeting in Albuquerque. “Senator Obama will tell you we can’t win in Afghanistan without losing in Iraq. In fact, he has it exactly backwards. It is precisely the success of the surge in Iraq that shows us the way to succeed in Afghanistan. It is by applying the tried and true principles of counterinsurgency used in the surge, which Senator Obama opposed, that we will win in Afghanistan.”
