Don't mention the last war

John McCain and Joe Lieberman (previewing their 2008 presidential campaign stump speech?) in the Wall Street Journal --

The war for Iraq is not over. The gains we have made can be lost. But thanks to the courage of our troops, the skill and intellect of their battlefield commander, and the steadfastness of our commander in chief, we have at last begun to see the contours of what must remain our objective in this long, hard and absolutely necessary war -- victory.

That would the same commander-in-chief in charge of they call "the mismanagement of the Iraq war from 2003 to 2006". The schizophrenia about Bush encapsulates what is going to be the fatal flaw of any McCain presidential run.
