    shill, or haven't you noticed, LOL!

    He's petrified that this will hurt the Administration.  I personally don't think that it will hurt the Administration, as long as they continue to work on a 'Grand Bargain' that the One Percent is demanding.  [And the Repubs would not dare start impeachment proceedings now that they've got 'entitlements' in the Administration's 'crosshairs.']

    However, there is an argument to be made that it may hurt HRC.  After all, she is a conservative Dem on some issues (foreign policy, fiscal conservative, etc.).

    Therefore, some of her hardline conservative-leaning supporters could be upset, if she is perceived to have 'dropped the ball' during the attack.

    Personally, I think that most liberals are fed up with all the military adventurism, and the many fiascos associated with them.

    Any Dem politician who wants my vote, would be wise to completely distance themselves from our current foreign policy direction regarding Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and the list goes on, and on, and on . . ..  ;-)

    At a time when all the talk is about "austerity," I'm in no mood to hear talk about engagement in yet another military action.  Nor in any mood to hear about a 'botched one.'

      and it's not only liberals who are fed up with military adventurism, with multiple associated fiascos. If HRC thinks she can lead the nation into another war, by waving her neoliberal banner while palling around with neocons, well.... she is mistaken.
