Why Iraq is Important to American Politics

First Read notes the effect of the Iraq war on American politics "can't be understated, even 10 years later."

"Without Iraq, there would be no President Obama. He rode Iraq to the nomination, making it the most important distinction he had with Hillary Clinton. Shoot, John Kerry isn't the nominee in 2004 were it not for Iraq and the Democrats' urgency at the time to find someone with war credentials as their standard-bearer. Iraq changed a lot in American politics. And that's why the anniversary is important."
