Some of my good friends have doubts about McCain. I admit that I don't really understand it, but because so many people I respect are (on the qt) expressing doubts about him I do feel the need to, every now and again, explain what I see in him.
This is why I like McCain: "Republican presidential hopeful John McCain said Monday he fears an offensive by Iraqi insurgents similar to the Tet offensive by the Viet Cong that sent U.S. casualties soaring in Vietnam nearly 40 years ago."
When it comes to the war on terror, he keeps his eye on the prize. He gets it.
