    I'm not saying that Hillary is my preferred candidate (Gore is), and I'm not thrilled with her position on the war, but I don't think you can compare her to Bush or McCain.  

    Hillary said just last week (after a lot of prodding from Meredith Viera) that she wouldn't have voted for the invasion if she'd known then what she knows now.  Is that a flip-flop?  Well, she presumably knows more now than she knew even in 2004. Remember, there were a LOT of folks out there who started out thinking that the war wasn't such a bad idea, who now have concluded that it's a complete and counterproductive bollix.  To those people,  Hillary won't seem like much of warmonger, or a flip-flopper.

    McCain, on the other hand, seems insane to be promoting an escalation of the war at this point. Whether it was a bluff that got called, or he seriously thinks we ought to send more troops there, I've got to believe that the widespread reaction to him now is "WTF?"

    How do you ask someone to be the last man or woman to die for a president's ego?
