[Music] Male Announcer: Is there a difference between the Democrats on Iraq? 

Thereís a big difference. 

Bill Richardsonís the only major candidate with a plan, endorsed by military and diplomatic leaders, to remove all of our troops.

Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, and Barack Obama have repeatedly said theyíll leave thousands
of troops in Iraq indefinitely Öeven beyond 2013.

Richardson: Iím Bill Richardson and I approved this message because Iíll get all our troops out of Iraq.  Thatís the only way to end the war.


Notes: From the press release:
"Iraq is the most important issue facing our country, but the national media and too many of my fellow candidates seem to have put it on the backburner," Governor Richardson said. "We can accomplish nothing on domestic issues, which the other candidates have shifted to, until we get all of our troops out of Iraq and actually end this war.

"There are serious policy differences in this race. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards could not pledge to have all of our troops out by 2013, five years from now. I will get all of them out within a year and leave no residual forces behind.

"I pledged early in this race to stay positive and debate the issues. This ad does not change that because in my mind, no other issue is more important than Iraq, and there are clear differences on where we stand.

"I am the only major candidate who will bring all of our troops home and end this war. Voters and caucus-goers deserve to know that there are clear policy distinctions between the candidates before deciding who should be the next President of the United States."
