| 1 Comment

Just listening to IMUS on MSNBC, chatting with CBS "Face the Nation" host Bob Schieffer....who said that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) will be his guests on Sunday to talk about sending more military to Iraq.

McCain is a leading voice for increasing overall military strength in Iraq Obama opposes, with a few exceptions. The conversation will take place in the short term context of congressional inquiry into the Iraq war and Bush's call tonight for more troops--and long term, a look at how the 2008 potential nominess handle themselves one on one.

Sorry about McCain being a prisioner in Nam, but he is a scary Senator.
