Kerry Vs. McCain

I'm a bit late on this one, but the Kerry Vs. McCain Iraq debate on Meet the Press last Sunday was a doozy. All you had to do with these two was let them go. Tim Russert was offscreen and unheard for long periods as former and current presidential candidates went at it, with visible mutual respect. But where Kerry offered a layered and nuanced explanation of why he thinks we need to "change the mission" (don't call it a withdrawal), McCain just kept repeating that we are winning, main front in the war on terror, yadda yadda yadda.

I'm an opinionated guy most of the time, but with this mess, I've thrown up my hands and left it to the experts. But Kerry's thinking seems much more, well, thought out.

Meet The Press is available as an iTunes podcast and at the NBC site (link).
