(Note: I don't like McCain and have no intention of supporting him. I'm still angry over McCain-Feingold.) It seems to me that if the war is to continue (for better or for worse) we should at least have a competent commander in chief and among the frontrunners on the GOP side McCain was right about Rumsfeld's failed strategy of making a light footprint, he is right about torture being both wrong and useless, and he is the ONLY Republican who's still focused on capturing bin Laden (read: thanks for nothing, Dubya). If we must have this terrible war, and assuming no third parties were available, why not chose McCain? At the very least, he has more knowledge and foreign policy experience than Romney, Giuliani, and Huckabee. If, hypothetically, I could pick someone to manage the war without picking that same person to be President I'd have to go w/ McCain. If only that were an option.
