02/16/2008 - 6:00 PM (also 02/17/2008 3:00 AM): Guest on Radio America "Battle Line," host Alan Nathan, re Campaign '08,
including "McCain's Valentine's Day present" to Democrats and America --
on Larry King Live 'defending' his statement that it would be all right if we are in Iraq for 100 years, and
he compounded it by saying "It's not a matter of how long we are in Iraq, it's whether we succeed."
I said, yes it is a matter of how long, since we are there because we missed the target of bin Laden on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, and I said I can't wait until we can run an ad showing McCain's saying "100 years" contrasted to either Clinton or Obama's saying we are working to get out in a year.
Also brought out the Democrats' record high turnout, and McCain's "marriage of convenience" with Romney.
In response to question of where democrats are going candidate-wise,
I said it will be decided by votes of Wisconsin, Texas, Ohio, and Pennsylvania,
and I expected the superdelegates to reflect the delegate majority and for it not to be controversial by that point (so I said....)
