'Politico' predicts McCain's coming victory in November

Just one problem: The article says it's because the public's views on the war have now come around to his side. Yet the new USAToday/Gallup poll out today shows that 60% of Americans still want withdrawal -- not the perpetual presence McCain's advocates. The Wall Street Journal even observes today: "At the five-year anniversary of the Iraq war, the conflict remains as unpopular as ever, despite the military progress of Mr. Bush's troop buildup of the past year -- of which Sen. McCain was the chief promoter. A majority still wants to start withdrawing troops in 2009 rather than stay indefinitely until Iraq is stable, as Sen. McCain suggests."
