2. We don't. Trust me.
But I respect his apology, though it doesn't right his lack of judgment.

I'm focused on what's his agenda for America.

I like what he brings to the table, and his vision for our country.

And he's on the right side of the issue, he wants the war to end. And he's fighting hard to make it happen, and calling on Congress to show a little backbone.

Only DK has got the war issue COMPLETELY right.

Obama wasn't in the Senate when the IWR vote happened, and has voted for funding the war.

No ones perfect. Especially on Iraq.
