John McCain gave the argument against him in the general election: Iraq.

It’s been my perception for a while now that whoever the Democratic candidate would be should run on one principal theme — John McCain: Four More Years. (or, if you like, John McCain — 100 More Years), pointing to his unshakable faith in our success in Iraq.

McCain seems to agree.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt that how they judge Iraq will have a direct relation to their judgment of me. My support of the surge. Clearly, I am tied to it to a large degree.”
