Arianna Huffington in her blog raises an issue that I have wondered about which is why the candidates are ignoring Iraq? Here’s what she says and I think she is right:
"…ignoring Iraq would be a disaster for the Democrats — whoever their nominee turns out to be. Pushing Iraq aside and ceding national security to the GOP while focusing on domestic and economic concerns is the exact game plan the party power-brokers convinced John Kerry to follow in 2004. And we all know how well that turned out.
Democrats need to start talking about Iraq and terrorism again — and about how the war has made us less safe and less effective in fighting terrorists — and not shut up about it until the first Tuesday in November."
