ABSTRACT
This article deals with U.S. Senator John McCain's strategy as he bids for the presidential nomination of the Republican party and how a photograph of him taken in Iraq could hurt his chances. The article maps McCain's apparent missteps in talking about the Iraq war to prominent members of the U.S. media and about his visit to Baghdad's Shorja market where local vendors complained about the Americans who were escorted by many soldiers. The author concludes that this political gamble may not work.
