Report Affects McCain's Presidential Prospects

Some observers have read the Iraq Study Group's report as a rebuke of the president, and of politicians who want more U.S. troops in Iraq.

John Dickerson, chief political correspondent of the online magazine Slate, talks with Madeleine Brand about the implications for the president, and for Arizona Sen. John McCain.

McCain is the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008, and he supports adding U.S. troops in Iraq.
