No telling whether Arizona Sen. John McCain’s Wednesday speech vigorously defending the Iraq war as “necessary and just” will start a surge in his presidential campaign, just as there’s no telling yet whether the troop surge will work.
But the Associated Press story on McCain’s speech included ideas for two alternate surges, suggested by Democratic presidential candidates:
“What we need today is a surge in honesty,” said Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., calling for leaders to let “the Iraqi government know America will not be there forever.”
“We need a surge of diplomacy,” said Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn.
And noncandidate Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., said a while ago on “Meet the Press” that “we need a surge of concern for our troops, for the veterans, for the injured, for the wounded, for the families of those who lost loved ones.”
What surges do bloggers think we need about now?
