Obama To Iraq and Around World

Obama is planning a world tour sometime before the Democratic convention. He's very popular around the world, and getting out and around could help him with foreign policy cred.

In this trip, he'll probably be in Iraq. This of course would answer McCain's nitpicking about how many times Obama's been to Iraq versus how many times McCain's been there. (Big deal.)

McCain spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker said that McCain had visited Iraq eight times since the 2003 invasion.

Eight times. I suppose it's good that he's gone, except when you factor in he's been going there for the propaganda value, it loses some of its impact. Mild mannered senator here he's transformed into Body-Armor-Man there. Eight times, but who's keeping track? It all sounds so playground, like 'nah nah nuh lah nah! I've been to Iraq eight times!' Since he thinks we need to stay another hundred years, he'll have plenty of time to up that record.
