Unlike Senators Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and a few others, Barack Obama doesn't have to answer for his 2002 senate vote to authorize force against Iraq. Barack was a state senator then.
On the bottom of the ticket--if Hillary gets the nomination--there is no way, NO WAY another 2002 Democrat hawk on Iraq can take that spot.
That helps Obama too if he chooses to sit out the primaries two years from now. Or next year, if New Hampshire follows through on its threat to put on its Democratic primary in 2007 to spite the DNC.
