Now that McCain is the nominee for the Republicans, one of the biggest weapons the Democrats have on the issue of Iraq, the charge of being a chickenhawk, is taken off the table. What is left is a straightforward debate about strategy. It's one where Obama is already getting annihilated.
Frank J has Obama's response in a guest post by Barack Obama (at least that's what it says) entitled, My Solution to Iraq Is to Never Have Gone There.
As the situation in Iraq continues to improve, the strategy of running away will become even more irrational. The polls have been shifting for some time towards optimism about Iraq. While a majority still believe it was a bad decision to go in, Obama will find out that arguing about decisions made years ago won't work in an election just like Hillary found arguing about experience didn't work. If people don't believe in your vision for the future, they won't vote for you no matter how many times you were right in the past. Just ask Bob Dole.
