How about he goes and chats up the folks at VetVoice, Winter Soldier Vets, the members of IVAW, people who have actually been there who have shared their horror stories? McCain wants Obama to get some firsthand accounts/experience there, what better way?

And PS, he should do this very publically. Oh, please, please, PLEASE do.

There's no better way of showing just how out of touch with mainstream Americans he is nor how much of a moonbat he is.

What a campaign ad that would be for McCain.

6. I think he shoud put as many Iraq war vets in governmental
positions as possible.... barring PTSD victims. Most chickenhawks need to hit the door as well. We might have a saner take on things next go around.
Well, that would count Obama out. If those who haven't been in Iraq can't set policy or support the war then those who haven't served in Iraq cannot set policy either. It either works both ways or neither way.

14. I'm hopeful the Obama camp and others will have lots of ads
reflecting the reality in Baghdad vs. McCain's sunny optimism that's such a lie.

It's funny, on another board (Possibly DailyKos), there was a hilarious conspiracy theory thread about how supposedly the "real" reason why McCain invited Obama to come to Iraq was really to have Obama assassinated while he was there and blame it on insurgents.
