  •  Yes, and Hillary is very Blair-like (none)
    Her position on Iraq (and other uses of U.S. military force) is very much like that of Blair's: "this is the right thing to do and to hell with what voters say." She still believes that the war was the right thing to do, despite the evidence about no WMD, no links to al-Queda or 9/11, and administration lies.

    Like Blair, she's also tone-deaf to civil libertarians. She's supported efforts to expand police search and seizure powers, even in non-terror related cases, and has suggested the possibility of a national ID card--an issue now being debated in the British Parliament.
