In an appearance this morning on Fox News Sunday, Ms. McCaskill answered McCain's criticism:
"I think it's a little over the top. And frankly, I think John McCain knows it's over the top. Barack Obama has had a very constant and consistent message on Iraq, and that is in order to keep our nation secure, we have to have a broader view. It's not just about what's going on in Iraq.
"And the interesting thing is the American people agree with him. The Iraqi people agree with him. This week we learned that the leader of the Iraqi government agrees with him. And even President Bush is beginning to sound like he's ready for a timetable for us to get out of Iraq.
"At this point, only John McCain is out there almost by himself in terms of the leadership of the two countries."
