  •  Too little, too late (4+ / 0-)

    Hillary Clinton backed this war and sucked up to Bush for far too long for her to have even one iota of credibility on this issue.  At this juncture the only thing I want her to do is to shut her fucking pigeontrap and KEEP it shut.

    In your hearts, you all know that if -- somehow -- Bush's poll numbers ever go back up again, this spineless woman will find a way to once again be an Iraq War hawk.  And probably an Iran War hawk too.

      The woman has a 30-year record (maybe you should read it?), and flatly put, there's not much in there to suggest she's 'spinless', as you so kindly suggest.

      For instance, try Googling "Health Care 1994".
      Because that was the popular thing to do, right?

      Right!? $700 Billion a year this nation spends over and above any other country on health care, this 'system' is absolutey ruining people, it is among the most well-armed political lobbies on the planet, and as far as I know (does anyone dispute this?), she and her husband have at the very least made the biggest effort to solve the problem.

        or the Mcneil Lehrer news hour.

        I thought her points were valid. Her points about putting constraints on the administration were important. The more that message gets out there, the better. Also she did a good job of explaining why we have to stop funding these Shia militias that are carrying out ethnic cleansing. And those are my words not hers. But she did talk about how we have to stop giving the Iraqi military funds. And I especially like what she said about Iran. Something along the lines of - this administration is so inept, no way we can allow them to attack Iran. I thought it was a good interview. I would not call her a war hawk. I am very pleased that she is calling for getting the troops out although she does not favor doing so immediately.

      I find that hard to believe. Besides, Bush's numbers will not go up because the American public wants our troops out of Iraq. I do not see how this war could suddenly become popular. And she made it very clear that war with Iran is a bad idea.
