Eagleburger v. Romney

McCain is hitting Romney pretty hard this weekend for allegedly being inconsistent about “goals and timetables” for Iraq. Fine. But is Eagleburger really the guy to deliver this message? It’s a bit rich for a member of the Iraq Study Group who ends up backing McCain to attack other people for not being, in Eagleburger’s words, “rock solid.”

Update: On the other hand, the Eagleburger statement is not nearly as jarring as the Conrad Burns endorsement of McCain. I guess that’s one way of unifying the party: McCain appeals to the people who prosecuted Abramoff and the people connected to him.
