Onward and Upward


From the Marin Independent Journal

A Republican charged with representing the views of presidential candidate Sen. John McCain told Dominican University students Thursday that war with Iran in the next four years is inevitable.

The prediction came during a campus event in which teams of Dominican students presented the positions of McCain and his Democratic opponent, Barack Obama, on six key issues: the economy, foreign policy, environment, health care, education and ethics.

After each presentation, brief comments were added by Republican William Grayson, president of a San Francisco hedge fund company and former general counsel for the San Francisco Republican Central Committee, and Tony West, a partner at a San Francisco law firm and co-chairman of the Obama campaign’s California finance committee.

“Let me assure you of this,” Grayson said after the student presentation on foreign policy. “The next president, whether it is Senator Obama or John McCain, will go to war, and he will go to war with Iran.
