Check out this new ad from MoveOn.org and AFSCME, who are trying to get it on the air in several key states. It's been a while since I was a new mom, but I can sure identify with this woman's sentiments.
I kept waiting for her to say something like, "He hasn't met his dad yet, because my husband's been in Iraq since before our son's birth." But although that doesn't seem to be the case for this little boy, there are many families with parents who are missing huge chunks of their children's first years because of repeated tours in Iraq, and thousands of parents who won't be coming back at all. So when the GOP's candidate John McCain said last week that it's "not too important" how long we stay there ... well, I am sure that many, many young families would beg to disagree ... strongly.
Update: Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama today laid the blame for the failure to capture Osama bin Laden exactly where it belongs.
