Petraeus for President?

Per The Weekly Standard, Gen. Petraeus, the architect of the US Military's surge in Iraq, has accepted an invitation to deliver the commencement address at the University of Iowa in 2010.

Now if you consider the fact that he has no past connection to Iowa, it's an interesting speech to accept, and one he had to know would turn heads.

Petraeus could be an interesting prospect if things in the region begin to sour. There is a reported schism between him and the President regarding Iraq/Afghanistan strategy, and the General would clearly be an intriguing alternative.
