To his credit, Russert was asking the right questions, reminding McCain of his now-embarrassing comments from a couple of years ago, in which the senator predicted an easy conflict. Im paraphrasing a little, but Russert noted that McCain said the war would be easy, to which McCain responded, It was easy.

Ive been anxious to know how McCain could possibly respond to some of his remarks from 2002 and 2003, beyond the obvious-but-honest, I was completely wrong, which he wouldnt dare say. To be sure, its a political problem. McCain said on CNN in September 2002, I believe that the success will be fairly easy. A few days later, he said, Were not going to have a bloodletting of trading American bodies for Iraqi bodies. Two months before the invasion, McCain boasted, We will win this conflict. We will win it easily.


Isn't this freak running for President in 2008? Kiss your chances goodbye McCain! Watch the video posted on Alternet.

I think you're really overestimating the potential of this video if you think it terminates McCain's prospects.

"Kiss your chances goodbye McCain!"

Do you really mean that?

Actually the video is just a small portion of why McCain won't get elected. I don't think the Republicans, with their massive collosal failures, can pull off an election win in 2008. If they do, I give up on the American voting populace.
