Chuck Todd: ‘The Republican Party Still Hasn’t Recovered from the Iraq War’

‘It took the Democratic Party arguably 24 years, 25 years to recover from Vietnam’

TODD: "You know, David Brooks, it took the Democratic Party arguably 24 years, 25 years to recover from Vietnam, to be trusted again with national security, and the election of Bill Clinton in ‘92, you could argue that. That really, even though Carter got in there, he barely got in there and it only reinforced the perception that Democrats can’t handle national security. How long- The Republican Party is still hasn’t recovered from the Iraq war."
