    I believe that Obama has made a wise decision...choosing the man who brought Iraq back from the brink.

    If Petraeus cannot save Afghanistan, nobody can. This gives me hope.

    On a side note...talk about irony:

    I'm no fan so I won't be a hypocrite.

    But I will say I bet he will never whine to his aides that Obama didn't "know who he is" and I bet he'll never drink while a reporter interviews him...nor claim that his boss is intimidated by him.

    Who was the one who chose McChrystal? I seem to have forgotten.
