UPDATE -- HUGE OPPORTUNITY FOR MCCAIN -- Knowing What He Knows Now Obama Would Still Oppose Surge -- All In For Defeat I Guess

Update:  This could be a HUGE opportunity for McCain!

McCain is comfortable making jokes about his age, how about this one:

"Wow, I though the old guy was supposed to be stuck in his ways in spite of the evidence.  Next Obama will be telling us to get off his lawn and turn that damn music down!"

Well, this presents McCain with an opportunity to frame Obama for the rest of the campaign as a staid, inflexible fool who can't seem to understand that the world doesn't revolve around his failed, inflexible policies!  It also covers McCain for changing his mind on drilling.

It hits at the premise that judgment is not just riding one decision 6 years ago but one has to have the wisdom to adjust to the changing world!

Special Report reported on the question asked to Obama.  His answer was useless but basically said he would still oppose the surge.  See if you can make sense of it:

Update -- here is the text of the exchange:
Q: If you had to do it over again, knowing what you know now, would you support the surge?
A: No, because, keep in mind that…
Q: You wouldn’t?
A: Keep in mind… These kinds of hypotheticals are very difficult. Hindsight is 20/20. But I think that, what I’m absolutely convinced of, is that at that time we had to change the political debate because the view of the Bush administration at that time was one that I just disagreed with.


Additional -- Obama wouldn't be able to go sans flak jacket if it weren't for the surge.
