obama is mulling a trip based on the merits of such a trip.
cnn: The Illinois Democrat told reporters that "Iraq would obviously be at the top of the list of stops."
"I think that if I'm going to Iraq, then I'm there to talk to troops and talk to commanders. I'm not there to try to score political points or perform," Obama said Wednesday. "The work they're doing there is too important."
Obama said he was considering visiting Iraq after Sen. John McCain had suggested that the two should make a joint trip to the country, a proposal Obama dismissed Tuesday as "nothing more than a political stunt."
