ABSTRACT
The article focuses on U.S. Generals Peter Pace and James Jones, both Marine four-stars. It appears that Pace, the Joint Chiefs of Staff vice chairman, has the lead over Jones, the Europe supreme allied commander, to replace General Richard Myers. Insiders note that Pace, 59, has recently filled in for Myers as Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's military twin during press conferences. Though critics say he avoids controversy, Pace's fans say he's the best person to sell the war. And the thousands of marines looking at more tours in Iraq say it is the perfect time to put one of their own in the top job.
