The McCain Doctrine

John Edwards:
Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards, targeting a potential Republican rival in 2008, dubbed plans for a short-term U.S. troop increase in Iraq "the McCain doctrine," in an interview aired on Sunday. [..]

"I actually, myself, believe that this idea of surging troops, escalating the war -- what Senator McCain has been talking about -- what I would call now the McCain doctrine ... (is) dead wrong," said Edwards.
The President Bush is so weak and has no real plan for Iraq that he is turning to Senator John '08 McCain for a political solutions. Yes, military escalation is a political solution not a military plan for success in Iraq.

NBC News, Jim Miklaszewski:
Interestingly enough, one administration official admitted to us today that this surge option is more of a political decision than a military one because the American people have run out of patience and President Bush is running out of time to achieve some kind of success in Iraq. While this plan will clearly draw some stiff opposition on Capitol Hill, the president is expected to announce it a week from today.
There you have it, it all political. Military escalation is just a political platform for John '08 McCain. Unfortunately for the American military, the Iraq people and '08 McCain President Bush is going to implement the McCain doctrine. Now, the Iraq war is McCain war also. It's a Republican war and all it's failures are on there hands. The Iraq was base a war on politics and ideology rather than facts and military planning. President Bush, '08 McCain, Holy Joe and the rest of their ilk are repeating the same mistake that got us in this war.

John Edwards knows a lot about poverty, after all, he's helped throw a lot of people into it with:

- his co-sponsorship of H-1b visas,

- his support for illegal aliens,

- his vote for MFN-China

but what about stuff like iraq war and the patriot act?

well, he voted for them too

About the only think you can say for Edwards is, he spent so much time running for president that he didnt have time to do more damage as senator

You've got to ask yourself - 'what did he do, with the power he had, when he had it?
