    The situation in Syria developed under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It is going about as badly as it possibly could, drawing us into war after killing so many Syrians and leading to chemical warfare.

    Yes, I'm happy Republicans will look bad. And don't get me started on Kerry, who asked for this frying pan fire and is doing about as well as Condoleeza Rice would (no surprise, since they agreed on Iraq the last time around).

    But the Syria section of Clinton's resume will make me want someone else as Democratic nominee in 2016.  If the people are all the same, nothing will change. And I still dare hope for change - even if not from these people.

      I'm not a misanthrope, I'm just very selective about who I'm willing to waste my time on.

      and how she caved to the neocons on Iraq.  If we elect Hillary is war with Iran inevitable?  I don't even know if she's solid on Social Security anymore so we're going to need some clarifications because I am not liking how things are going.

        "fair trade agreements" she's been pushing since the early 1990s, none of us will have a job anyway.  Social Security problem solved!

      For the last two years she failed to stop Assad's war against his people.
               or
      For the last two years she kept us from jumping into the religious civil war in Syria.

      It all depends on whether you believe in "humanitarian bombing" or not.

      •  This Is Success? (0+ / 0-)

        A quagmire that drags the US into yet another unwinnable Mideast sectarian war? I guess Bush deserves credit for keeping us out of the Syrian war for his 8 years, too.
