ARLINGTON, VA – Today, while campaigning in Reno, NV, U.S. Senator John McCain responded to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s support for a “do-over” vote on the Iraq war:
“Senator Clinton’s proposal is the worst idea anyone could possibly have.
“It’s a bad idea not to give the strategy we now have in place in Iraq a chance to succeed, especially when we have seen signs of early progress.
“It’s always a bad idea to try and undo what you voted for. Political expedience cannot undo a vote cast on a matter of conscience.
“And it’s most certainly a bad idea to waste the Senate’s time with legislation that sends such a terrible signal to our brave men and women in uniform who are giving their all to make this new strategy work.”
