Obama playing politics with Iraq

I know that MyDD is full of Obama lovers and Hillary haters; it seems that whenever you praise Sen. Clinton, people bring up the old issues and bash her about it, but is Sen. Obama says or does something that appears wrong, then folks come and pretend that he is still in a "learning phase".
Well, now, let's take Iraq. Sen. Clinton had made an announced call for a speech in Iowa today to talk about Iraq at length, with her recent op-ed in the New York Daily News with Sen. Byrd of West Virginia. Sensing that he is losing ground to Hillary among voters who trust her experience and doubt his ability (rightfully so.. to some extent), he also announced his own speech for Iraq FIVE MINUTES away from Hillary's speech podium. Maybe he will blame his staff for this mistake, AGAIN!
Now, Obama announced at the last minute that he will deliver the speech as well and is using it to divide Democrats, but inciting some sort of "fear" that those who voted for this made a terrible decision (that is debatable.. this war is a mistake) and talks in his ever Professorial manner. Obama should STOP this politicization for war and not divide us like the GOP and instead, unite the party, behind him or the entire Democratic movement to ensure an outstanding victory in '08.
Go ahead all Obama manias, bash me with all you got. I am just being fair and I have criticized Sen. Clinton before you begin comparing me to "areyouready"
