The fine military site Small Wars Journal today has an outstanding article by LtCol. Dale Kuehl titled Inside the Surge: 1-5 Cavalry in Ameriyah.

The two central issues of this election are the war and the economy. As LtCol. Kuehl's article makes clear, the too-simple ideology of the left and the too-simple ideology of the right are both utterly useless when it comes to actually winning the war. And the same is true of the economy, as Alan Greenspan's recent confession makes clear.

McCain can win by reminding the electorate of what the majority of voters already know in their hearts ... the problems America faces are too big to be solved by anyone's ideology ... whether left or right.
