Single issue politics is a destructive force; and those driven by it may achieve a Pyrric victory. Senator Clinton has been heavily criticized for not apologizing for her Iraq war vote, but this should not drive the debate. These are serious times, and we require serious debates and serious candidates. Senator Obama has the luxury of having been against the war from the beginning, but his opinion came from the "cheap seats" of the Illinois State Senate, and one wonders if he would have voted against it if he had the burden of being in the US Senate at the time.
That said, we all accept that the initiation and execution of this war has been a disaster fromt he beginning. But I have no doubt that Senator Clinton, as President, would extricate us from this war as quickly and effectively as Senator Obama.
