General's Job Interview

General Petraeus today will face off with his new boss-Clinton, McCain, and Obama all serve on committees before which Petraeus is testifying today. Look for all of them to attempt to burnish their pro- or anti-war credentials with questions that are actually just speeches and don't require any sort of answer and are really just grandstanding and not making any attempt to use the Socratic Method to get to the heart of the issue. Ain't Congress grand?
