    voted for the war, that makes her just the same as Bush, who refuses to admit he made a mistake in launching the war. You can't have it both ways. You can't be for the war but against how Bush is fighting it. Kerry tried it and it didn't work. Anyone too timid to admit the war was a mistake doesn't get my vote.

    If your name was George Walker instead of George Walker Bush, your candidacy would be a joke.

    •  If Clinton were president now (0+ / 0-)

      she would be changing course.  If she had been elected president in 2000, we wouldn't be in Iraq today because she's not that stupid.  These are powerful people, they don't think like powerless people.  We protest the war because that's all we can do.  Clinton doesn't think in terms of making impotent 'statements', she thinks in terms of beating Republicans.  Would it satisfy you if George Bush admitted the war was a mistake, and then continued with the same policy?  I'm not interested in 'statements' from the candidates, I'm interested in the candidate who can beat Giuliani.

      The one thing I'm sure of:  Clinton will act rationally as President, unlike Bush, who acts irrationally.

      •  Damn straight! (0+ / 0-)

        You're right on that point. Right now the best candidate to beat McCain or Guliani is Clinton. Wining is the most important thing to me. One more justice on the Supreme Court who is a right wing lunatic and then its all over. Employee rights, abortion rights, complete power to the executive branch, I just can't go throught that. Are we moving forward or moving backward?
