Recent victories by ISIS have called Barack Obama's Middle East strategy into question and once again made Iraq an issue on the U.S. electoral battlefield. It has been 12 years since President George W. Bush marched into an unpopular war in Iraq, and still the reverberations are being felt.Republicans counter that the incumbent Democratic president's blind determination to drawdown U.S. troops in a conflict he never supported has allowed ISIS to thrive.The presumptive Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is in a particularly tricky spot.Her vote in favor of the Iraq war and her role, as Obama's Secretary of State, in forging current strategy mean she is tethered to the unpopular decisions of both the Bush and Obama administrations.
