ABC's anchor Charles Gibson traveled to Chicago to update us on how Iraq is playing on the campaign trail. ABC's Jake Tapper followed newly announced candidate Barack Obama of Illinois as he spelled out his opposition to the war. His plan to pull out troops "was even assailed by the Prime Minister of Australia," Tapper pointed out. Tapper decided that the senator "stumbled" when he implied that soldiers killed in Iraq had died in vain.
ABC's George Stephanopoulos explained why Hillary Rodham Clinton, the suburban Chicago native, alone among Democratic Presidential candidates, is holding out against retracting her Senate vote to give President George Bush his go-ahead for war. "It is a matter of conviction. She does not believe it was a mistake." Stephanopoulos repeated the theory by some political operatives that Rodham Clinton is "trapped by her gender--that she has a special burden to appear strong."
