  •  You've got it wrong. (0+ / 0-)

    Hillary has been saying no war with Iran without specific congressional authorization since at least February.  Check the date here.  And what dirt will you say Madeleine Albright is screwing herself into?

    •  And when did Webb introduce his amendment? (0+ / 0-)

      And when did Clinton sign onto it?

      •  Yes, that amendment (0+ / 0-)

        came afterwards.  But you're the one who said she signed onto it just to make up for the KL vote.  You have to give her credit for at least giving lip service, and I think it was more than that, to the idea that an explicit congressional approval was needed months before the Webb amendment.  If you thought that the Iranians were a problem in Lebanon and Iraq and in other places and if you thought that labeling the IRG as a terrorist organization would help bring pressure on them to lessen their interference in those places,  then the KL vote could be the right thing to do and mean more than just about Iraq.  And, although you pooh poohed the statement about other smart and usually trustworthy Senators voting for KL, I think their view is a legitimate one to hold and that you are being overly cynical.  You seem intent, and occasionally irrationally so, on maintaining your view that Hillary is a warmongering corporate sellout who polltests every move.  No explanation, no matter how sensible, deters you from always going back to that cynicism.
