McCain: More Troops

McCain is ready to grasp the nettle, it seems:

"We will never surrender. They will," McCain said. McCain told reporters afterward that the Army and Marines need to expand their forces by at least 100,000 to give National Guard units a break.

"It is my conviction we have to have a larger Army and Marine Corps. It is absolutely essential because we are asking the Guard to do things that we have never asked them to do before," McCain said.

Amen. I have an idea for his campaign bus in 2008. Scrap the "Straight Talk Express" and call it the "Reality and Victory Bus."
