Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq and Afghanistan, took the stage Wednesday where presidential candidates have debated but said his visit had nothing to do with politics or New Hampshire, home to the first presidential primaries.

So he intends to seize the presidency by force.  Fascinating.

He needs to be SecDef once Gibbs is through.  Yes, I realize that that isn't legal, but surely they could change the rules for someone of his stature.

Gibbs? You want Petraeus to be the White House Press Secretary?

It is a distant wish for me. The GOP needs someone like him. More importantly, the country needs someone like him.

Obviously from his language, he expects Gibbs to replace Gates, and then Petraeus to replace Gibbs.

How else will Obama get his proposed forced-homosexuality program through the military ranks?

Well he could always change his mind. Eisenhower originally didn't want to run for president if I am correct, but changed his mind when he saw a groundswell of grassroots support for a presidential bid.
