    particularly noteworthy, and it's literally decades past being even remotely brave.

    And "vast majority" is bullshit. I was here, as you were. Hillary was on the wrong side of history about Iraq, and that sunk her as a Democratic nominee. That you equate that political argument---and that's exactly what it was---as "authoritarianism" is absolute rubbish.

      For me, it came down to her continued involvement with the DLC.  Mark Penn, Lanny Davis, Terry McAuliffe.  And her husband.  The one thing Bill Clinton pulled out all the stops for was NAFTA and WTO.  HRC carried all that baggage.

      This clip is obviously a campaign speech cleverly made before the campaign so as to blunt accusations that she changed her position out of political expediency.  

      Which is great news.  She's running.  I'll support HRC with enthusiasm this time around.  

      Any Democrat who gets the nomination will be a corporate Democrat.  Obama has made that clear.  But to have HRC appoint the replacements for Scalia and Kennedy?  Priceless.

      This aggression will not stand, man.

        will be outstanding!  I could see her naming Kathleen Sullivan or Pam Karlan or any number of strong, liberal jurists. God, I hope I live long enough to see the day.

        One of his regrets was not seeing his girl, Hillary Clinton, elected President.

        It's the Supreme Court, stupid!
