Obama won’t appoint George Bush as ambassador to Iraq
At a town hall event in Wisconsin, Barack Obama responded to a comment where John McCain said that a date for withdrawal from Iraq was “not too important.” Obama said that McCain was not thinking about the troops and was not thinking about the taxpayers who pay for the war.
One questioner asked Obama to appoint George W. Bush as ambassador to Iraq after he is elected president. Obama answered, “actually, we need someone really good in that job.”
