McCain says he could lose based on war issue

Rocky River, Ohio (AP) John McCain has offered a blunt prediction about the presidential race. The republican nominee-apparent said that to win the white house, he must convince the country that U.S. policy in Iraq is succeeding. If not, said McCain, then -- in his words – “I lose.''

He quickly backed off that remark. Instead, McCain said Iraq will play a role in voters' judgment of his ability to handle national security.

The Iraq conflict already is emerging as a fault line in the general election, with the arizona senator calling for the U.S. military to continue its mission while his democratic opponents urge quick withdrawal.
