I totally called it

So back when McChrystal got sacked for criticizing the administration, the media swarmed to the McClellan analogies like ants at a picnic, and I speculated that they’d eventually be giving Petraeus the Grant treatment.   And BEHOLD!  Petraeus has been reading Grant books, and pundits have taken note.

Here’s another prediction, this time contingent on events at the polls.  If the Democrats suffer in the mid-term elections, and if Obama then manages a public opinion rebound and wins a second term in 2012, then we’ll be treated to yet another round of Lincoln-Obama comparisons, this time invoking ’62 and ’64.
