McCain Sets Timeline for Iraq Withdrawal
John McCain is in the magical mystical state of Ohio today, and he’s looking ahead to what he plans on accomplishing in his first term in the White House.
Interestingly, despite his consistent refusal in the past to set a timeline for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, he is telling his swing-state audience something a little different.
From The Washington Post’s preview:
Sen. John McCain will pledge today that most American troops will return home from Iraq by 2013 if he is elected president, a position that closely resembles the promises made by both of his potential Democratic rivals.
