The Real McCain
So is the problem that McCain wasn't paying attention at last week's Petraeus hearings? Or is it that he doesn't understand the difference between a theater commander, a regional commander, and the commander-in-chief? Matthew Yglesias and Kevin Drum are correct in saying that it will be tough to convince the public that the perception of McCain as a national security icon is a mistaken one. But he certainly is generous about providing the proof necessary to make the case.
