Is he going to switch to the Democratic Party now?

There is no ambiguity there whatsoever: McCain very clearly stated that if additional troops aren't sent into Iraq, the war will be unwinnable. And if that becomes the case, McCain said, he "cannot" ask soldiers to return to Iraq. This would be "immoral," he says.

Okay, then -- if President Bush decides against troop increases, will McCain then stop supporting the continued troop presence there and call for withdrawal? Will the media press him on this point? And if McCain does continue to support the U.S. troops staying in Iraq -- which by his own lights would be "immoral" -- will reporters and commentators note the glaring contradiction?
