Schweitzer delivered a speech to Democrats in Altoona, Iowa, on Wednesday, doing everything he can to raise his profile ahead of the 2016 elections.

Schweitzer further criticized the Iraq War in comments to CNN's Peter Hamby, who was in Iowa for the speech.

“Anybody who runs in this cycle, whether they are Democrats or Republicans, if they were the United States Senate and they voted with George Bush to go to Iraq when I would say about 98 percent of America knows that it was a folly, that it was a waste of treasure and blood, and if they voted to go to Iraq, there will be questions for them on the Left and from the Right,” he said.

With new Democrat and Republican faces on the political scene, former Secretary of State Clinton might just be the only candidate in 2016 who voted to go to war in Iraq.
