John McCain on Clarity

Not that I expect it to be of interest to anybody else, but something in McCain's speech today
It is important that the candidates who seek to lead the country after the Bush Administration define their objectives and what they plan to achieve not with vague language but with clarity.

brought back four year old memories
Leaving Saddam Hussein in charge in Iraq was a risk the country could not take, McCain said. While the war "has surely had its ups and downs,'' Bush's efforts "deserve not only support, but admiration. He has led with great moral clarity and resolve.''

I can't be the only person who got sick of hearing McCain praise Bush for his "great moral clarity." I'd love to see a couple of clips of dancin' George's statement of golf principles interspersed with clips of McCain's praise of Bush for his "great moral clarity."

For more on McCain and clarity, see Pat Buchanan. Yeah, he spins history, but I'm serious:
Having cheerfully confessed he knows little about economics, John McCain is advancing himself as a foreign-policy president, a "realistic idealist," he told the World Affairs Council of Los Angeles.

But judging from the content of his speech, McCain is no more a realist than he is a reflective man.
