McCain's Pro War Stance Seen Sinking Presidential Chances

Americans are weary of the Iraq war and angry with politicians who acted like cheerleaders for President Bush's failed policies in both the run up to war and the ongoing struggle. Perhaps no potential 2008 candidate is suffering more than John McCain, and justly so. However rightly or wrongly, McCain is often viewed as a moderate voice within the Republican Party, but on the Iraq war he stood out more than most in his unabashed support for the President. Nowhere was this more evident than during the 2004 Presidential campaign when McCain embraced the president (literally) on many occasions and trumpeted his "leadership" on Iraq. As Iraq drags on and the President's support, or rather lack of it, reaches historically low levels, McCain now finds his own presidential chances suffering greatly. -IFK Editor
