Phil Bredesen, Gov. (D-Tenn.):
The obvious question is too important to get sidelined by reportorial cleverness: Ask “How do you intend to disengage our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan?” Follow up vague answers.
McCain is thinking like a Senator, not a President. Way too much process, way too much insider baseball. Here in Tennessee, people are very scared by a complicated set of issues that are difficult to understand. This crisis, even more than most, cries out for frankness and leadership, but the straight talk express is on a siding somewhere.
