Might we see the first shots of the 2008 Presidential Election being fired? Republican John McCain today accused Hillary Clinton of wanting to surrender to our enemies.
From 'The Caucus' blog, at the New York Times site:
"Candidate Clinton has called for surrender and waving the white flag," he said during an appearance in West Palm Beach. "I think it's terrible. I think it's terrible."
It may be a bit early for the two frontrunners to engage. Clinton has kept her powder dry, mentioning McCain only when prompted in debates, or by reporters. If McCain is the nominee for the Republicans it is clear he will campaign on toughness, experience, and foreign policy, as evidenced by McCain's remarks today.
National polling out from LA Times / Bloomberg today shows Hillary Clinton beating McCain in a head to head match up, 46% to 42%. Obama loses to John McCain 41% to 42%.
