Analysis: GOP, Dems using wars to define Obama

clipped from
Democrat Barack Obama wants to prove he's ready
to be a wartime commander in chief. Republican John McCain hopes to
sell the idea that his rival is not.
The return of Iraq and Afghanistan to the forefront of the
presidential campaign illustrates how both sides increasingly seem
to view the race as largely a referendum on Obama, a first-term
Illinois senator trying to become the first black president.
"I will end this war as president," Obama said of Iraq and
promised anew that he would redirect U.S. efforts to Afghanistan.
The likely Democratic nominee struck a stately pose Tuesday as he
delivered a lengthy foreign policy address ahead of an upcoming
overseas trip. He spoke from a podium that said "Judgment to
Lead" set up before an array of American flags.
