Barack Obama, in recent days, has been encouraging people to think of him in comparison to John McCain, the frontrunner for the Republican nomination. At a Delaware rally he compared himself to Hillary Clinton, arguing that he's the best choice to run against McCain, because of the clarity he offers on positions -- and connected Clinton to McCain's positions on the Iraq war.
"We expect that John McCain may end up being the nominee. And if John McCain is the nominee, then the Democratic party has to ask itself do you want a candidate who has similar policies to John McCain on the war in Iraq or somebody who can offer a stark contrast?" he said.
