If McClellan's enemies had made more mistakes, Little Mac would be a great general.

Albert,  I would submit that what a general does with the mistakes made by his adversary help make him a great general.  Jackson has a great Shenandoah Valey campign in 1862 because he capitalizes on the mistakes of his opponents.  McClellan doesn't have a great Antietam campaign because he doesn't capitalize on Lee's.
