They accuse Democrats of being unpatriotic for our dissent - though usually the big-wigs leave it to others to conduct that kind of branding. But today McCain crossed a line I don't think I've ever heard from a presidential candidate himself.
It seems to me that Senator Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign.
That's a pretty nasty charge, putting political ambition over the well-being of the troops and the country...

But isn't it even worse if we pull the logical inference out of it? If he says Obama would win a campaign by losing the war, doesn't that implicate American voters in that ill-framed tradeoff? After all, the only way losing the war could turn into an electoral victory is if *we vote for it.*
