Arizona Senator John McCain, criticizing those in both parties who want to start withdrawing troops from Iraq, said yesterday that they “have a responsibility to tell us what they believe are the consequences of withdrawal in Iraq. If we walk away from Iraq, we’ll be back, possibly in the context of a wider war in the world’s most volatile region.” It’s good to know there are still some adults on Capitol Hill.
Opposing whatever the president proposes is no longer an option for the Democrats. They now have the responsibility to advocate policies in the national interest. And today would be a good time to start.
