Senator John McCain's trip to Iraq last spring was a low-key affair: With his ordinary retinue of reporters following him abroad, the NBC News anchor Brian Williams reported on his arrival in Baghdad from New York, with just two sentences tacked onto the "in other political news" portion of his newscast.
But when Obama heads for Iraq and other locations overseas this summer, Williams is planning to catch up with him in person, as are the other two evening news anchors, Charles Gibson of ABC and Katie Couric of CBS, who, like Williams, are far along in discussions to interview Obama on successive nights.

I wonder if Williams, Gibson and Couric will bring him flowers and candy?
Ironically their interview in Iraq will be uneventful and safe. Darn troop surge (which Obama said would fail... well no wait, he now says it was good, no wait, never mind) have ruined the violent backdrop the media loves so much.
Remember kids; a successful Iraq is bad for Democrats. They NEED failure to get votes. Sick.
