"It was not easy to be against that war back when we cast that vote in October of 2002," Durbin said. "I was one of 23 who voted against the war. Barack was supportive - one of the few candidates speaking out strongly against it in Illinois.
"If President Clinton had opposed that war as strongly as Barack Obama at the time, it would have helped a lot of us who had voted against authorizing an invasion."
Bill Clinton has repeatedly questioned whether Obama was against the war at the time of the war vote, despite obvious evidence that he was.
