WASHINGTON—The official theme on Friday for White House hopeful Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is the anniversary of the 2002 Senate vote to authorize the Iraq war.

Subthemes not planned by the Obama message team that are ripening:

1. His skipped vote on the Iran terrorist measure. He was against it (Clinton for it) but was campaigning in New Hampshire and did not vote.

2. Chatter about whether winning the Nobel Peace Prize will get Al Gore in the 2008 race.
