File Under: Would've been nice to mention BEFORE the election.

Given that a. the war in Iraq was one of the largest issues in the past election next to b. the war on terror; it'd've been nice for Mr. Straight Talk Express to mention his misgivings about the Secretary of Defense his canidate had chosen for his first term before the election. At least some sort of, "I support Bush, but not all the people he hangs out with at those cabinet meetings."

"Senator John McCain said Monday that he had 'no confidence' in Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld, citing the secretary's handling of the war in Iraq and troop levels there that Mr. McCain deems insufficient.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Mr. McCain, an Arizona Republican who is a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, said his comments were not a call for Mr. Rumsfeld's resignation. President Bush 'can have the team that he wants around him,' the senator said.

But asked about his confidence in the secretary's leadership, Mr. McCain recalled fielding a similar question earlier. 'I said no,' he said. 'My answer is still no. No confidence.'"
