32. The only candidate for US Senate in Illinois in '03/'04
He had a four way Democratic primary and Obama was the only one who clearly spoke out against the war in Iraq. He has been there all along.

I'll vote for Obama either way, but I think it would hurt his argument to pick someone who voted for the war.
