It would be nice if someone in the press would try to get McCain to state just how many troops exactly we should send to Iraq. If you attempt to Google an answer to this question, you'll find quite a wide range of figures mentioned, and more often than not no figures discussed.

There's the possibility that McCain is likely to snooker a win-win gambit here. If Iraq somehow miraculously turns around thanks to GW's surge, McCain can proclaim a "I told you!" victory cry. However, if more likely Bush's escalation fails and Iraq descends further into chaos, McCain can then counter that not enough troops were sent.

So would someone please try to corner Mr. "Straight Talk Express" on this point?
