Clinton Wins War of Words (by Volume) on Iraq

The war in Iraq was a significant factor in this week’s election coverage. McCain, the candidate who most strongly supports the U.S. presence there, was in Baghdad on a congressional visit ahead of the fifth anniversary of the conflict, but still he did not receive the highest number of mentions on this topic. McCain was discussed in connection with Iraq 573 times, but Clinton was mentioned more often (607 times), as she used a speech in Washington Monday to slam both McCain and Obama (423 mentions) on Iraq.
