"We are going to bring an end to this war and I will fight hard in the United States Senate to make sure we don't pass any funding bill that does not have a deadline," Obama told the crowd.
By making the statement, Obama joined only Dodd, who has been critical of Clinton and Obama for their resistance to tying war appropriations to a schedule.
Clinton is a Senate holdout, though probably not for long. This is a step forward for Obama, who previously had not committed to a course of action. We'll see where he goes from here, and this can only help his campaign. It's also a step forward for the push to end the war.
Criticism is a good thing, even and especially for the object being criticized. I'll have more on this soon.
