From the LA Times ...
While in Iraq Barack Obama received an "unexpected boost" from Iraqi President Nouri al-Maliki. He told the German magazine Der Spiegel that "he looked favorably on Obama's call for a 16-month timetable for withdrawing most U.S. forces from Iraq."
Unfazed by Obama's winning strategy for Iraq - and as expected - Sen. John McCain whined and attacked Obama's foreign policy credentials and judgment.
Unfortunately for McCain it looks like President Bush has been swayed by Obama too. It turns out that President Bush and the Iraqi leader have reached an agreement on the need to set a "time horizon" for withdrawing U.S. troops.
