THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL

QUOTE OF THE DAY
“John McCain as a young officer demonstrated courage and character. But the service as president is about judgment. And the experience that he had as a fighter pilot isn’t the same as having been at the highest levels of the military and having to make — work with the president and other heads of state and make those kinds of life or death decisions about national, strategic issues.” — Ret. Army Gen. Wesley Clark

STAT OF THE DAY
Seventy-six percent of the people contacted in an AP-Ipsos survey in June said the country was on the wrong track. That’s up from 71 percent in April and 66 percent near the end of 2007.
