"I believe that either today or tomorrow -- and I'm not privy to his schedule -- Sen. Obama will be landing in Iraq with some other senators" who make up a congressional delegation, McCain said at a Republican fund-raiser.McCain's horrified advisers immediately began backpeddling and trying to cover up the gaffe. They immediately recognized the import of McCain's remarks.
Don't get me wrong, I don't think McCain was deliberately trying to put Obama in harm's way. I just think it's clear that McCain doesn't think before he speaks.
We need a president that thinks before he speaks.
