McCain's No Surrender Tour

John McCain announced on a blogger conference call this morning that he will embark on a "No Surrender Tour" to drum up public support for David Petraeus' troop surge strategy in Iraq by telling the American public that he feels that the surge is working and explaining to them the consequences of American failure in Iraq.

General Petraeus is scheduled to give a Iraq Progress Report to Congress in September, which is around the time that McCain will start the No Surrender Tour.

Also, on the same call, McCain said that the number one domestic issue that voters want to talk about at his town hall meetings is health care.

But McCain admitted that the Iraq issue "dominates everything".
