McCain Calls For Benchmarks

Sounds to me like John McCain supports the new Democratic proposal for ending the war in Iraq.

McCain said he supports President Bush’s plan to boost the U.S. troop level in Iraq.

“This is our last shot, my friends; this is our last chance,” he said.

But he added a variety of indicators will show “within months” whether that strategy is working. If it is not, he said, other options would have to be considered.
