John Kerry responded to John McCain comment that the date for troop withdrawal from Iraq is “not too important”

Kerry said, “It is unbelievably out of touch and unconsistent with the needs and concerns of Americans, in particularly the families of the troops who are over there. To them, it’s the most important thing in the world when they come home. And it’s the most important thing in the world that we have a Commander in Chief who understands how you can bring them home.”
