WASHINGTON--Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), flying from Denver to Chicago on Wednesday, told reporters he did not think that his visiting Iraq is "relevant" This after being under attack from Sen. John McCain (R-Az.) for only traveling to Iraq once.

Obama also said:
*After Tuesday he will have enough delegates to win the nomination. Obama also figures the Democratic National Committee Rules and Bylaws Committee will come up with a deal to seat Michigan and Florida when they meet Saturday. The panel may well vote on a solution--but that's not the end of it if Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) is not satisfied with the result. There is another step--an appeal to the credentials committee at the Democratic convention in Denver this August.
