Why Won't Hillary Talk About Iraq?

According to the Leftcoaster, Hillary Clinton's wing of the Democratic Party is simply presenting itself to the voters as "GOP-lite." Clinton refuses to mention Iraq when discussing Democratic policy and seems to cave in on Republican political issues like flag burning.

While Hillary Clinton does seem to have flawed talking points that give a lot of ground to Republican claims that she is merely a calculating opportunist, she has a solidly liberal voting record and its unlikely that another Clinton administration would abandon progressive values to the extent that bloggers fear.

It's wrong politically and morally for Democrats to avoid the Iraq issue however. Only 34% of Americans believe that Iraq will or should be considered a success.
