Obama = McCain
Remember way back in September and October, when Obama and McCain supposedly had completely divergent views on Iraq? McCain wanted to stay there for a 100 years, while Obama wanted to bring the troops home in 16 months? Well, the two agree now. Seems like 50,000 troops is just the right number to placate the neocons while at the same time convincing everybody else that this administration represents a clean break with the past.
