(CNN) – President Bush’s announcement that some U.S. troops will be shifted from Iraq to Afghanistan has re-ignited the foreign policy/national security debate between Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain – just as the general election campaign gets under way.
In the latest episode of CNN=Politics Daily, Wolf Blitzer has the latest on Bush’s new troop plan. Suzanne Malveaux, reporting from the campaign trail, has Obama’s response to the Bush announcement as well as the Democratic nominee’s latest education policy proposal.
Dana Bash, who’s also out on the campaign trail with Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin, reports on McCain’s latest line of attack directed at Obama on the issues of foreign policy and national security.
Finally, with McCain’s surprise pick of Palin for the Republican VP spot, many pundits have speculated that the Republican Party is making a concerted effort to win over disaffected female supporters of Sen. Hillary Clinton, who lost the Democratic nomination to Obama and was not offered the VP slot on her party’s fall ticket. Using results from a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll, Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider takes a closer look at Palin’s popularity with both sexes.
