Spokesman Bill Burton tells Talking Points Memo the idea “is nothing more than a political stunt.”

“…we don’t need any more ‘Mission Accomplished’ banners or walks through Baghdad markets to know that Iraq’s leaders have not made the political progress that was the stated purpose of the surge.”

Comes after McCain agreed to a joint trip with his Democratic opponent, telling the AP Monday night “it would be fine.”
