Iraq War Rod

Does voting for the Iraq War count as a blunder?

In roll call 455 Rod voted for the IWR as did 80 other Democrats.

In roll call 453 Rod did have the sense to vote for the Spratt amendment which would have required Bush to get a UN Security Council resolution before invading. He was one of 147 Democrats and seven Republicans that voted for this.

In roll call 452 Rod was one of 136 Dems to vote against the Lee amendment. The Lee amendment called for resolving the situation through peaceful means.

So Blagojevich's votes were not heinous except for the big one. Has he ever said voting for the Iraq War was a mistake?
