Petraeus and Hewitt
by

While Andrew Sullivan is a bit hyperbolic in his reaction to David Petraeus appearing on the Hugh Hewitt show, I do believe that it would be better if Petraeus maintained an image of a non-partisan commander capable of rendering unbiased judgments on the situation in Iraq. For those of us who support giving the surge a chance to work, one of the few remaining arguments that is potentially politically viable is that we should give Petraeus the time he asks for. Anything that helps Democrats portray him as a partisan general will make it easier for them to undermine his credibility, and thus harder for Republicans to make the case for the surge.
