President Obama is pledging to avoid a repeat of Vietnam during his nationally televised speech that is defining his young administration.
Reviews are mixed. Public opinion polling is not.
Senator John McCain says that he isn't thrilled about announcing a withdrawal date, but he is pleased with the rest of the strategy because it's modeled after the Iraq surge.
Meanwhile, Chris Matthews says that President Obama delivered his speech in "enemy camp" last night ...apparently Matthews thinks that West Point is our enemy.
