17. Thanks for posting the UTube vid...Obama clearly would have voted FOR the War..
Edited on Sun Jul-29-07 08:26 PM by Tellurian
It was a Roll Call Vote... He would have voted "YES"!

Obama said clearly he would have voted "NAY" if it were an UP or DOWN Vote...

The vote wasn't UP or Down.. So, he's agreeing with those who at the time voted FOR THE WAR!

He's been lying all this time saying, he wouldn't have voted for the war!
