The question

The question that should be asked of Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and all other candidates who have repented of their votes on the Iraq War resolution--or who supported the war at its outset--is this: Do you now believe that the war was wrong from the outset, or is it the way that the war has been fought that leads you to oppose it now?

On an immediate practical level, I admit that one reason for opposing the war now is pretty much as good as another, but a candid answer to this question would give a valuable clue to the foreign policy that a candidate would likely follow should she or he be elected President.
