First, the tenor of the Prime Minister's intervention will have undercut Australia's influence with the Democrats at precisely the time we need to engage with them. Second, Senator Obama's response highlighted the gap between the Government's extensive commentary on the importance of the war in Iraq and the scale of our actual deployment there.A version of this article was published on The National Interest Online on 14 February 2007.
