Big day tomorrow.....Its not everyday that all 3 candidates will be asking the commanding general on the ground in a current war/occupation about their future problem. VERY interesting day. =============================================================== John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama all serve on the Senate committees that will hear testimony from Petraeus and the US ambassador to Baghdad, Ryan Crocker, and are expected to use the hearings to demonstrate their credentials on national security and the future of the war. Petraeus has indicated he will tell Congress he wants to freeze further withdrawals from Iraq, keeping in place two of the five brigades of additional troops deployed during last year's troops surge. The recommendation, which George Bush is expected to endorse on Thursday in a speech to mark the fifth anniversary of the fall of Baghdad, will effectively put the war on hold for the next 10 months. That makes it virtually certain some 140,000 US troops will remain in Iraq when the next president takes office next January. ============================================================ who comes out more "commander in chief" like McCain - Obama - or Clinton???
