    Hillary didn't say that.

    Chelsea did.

    Critiquing Chelsea's use of clairvoyant is way over the top when it could refer to a great many things (ie. agreed with the vote, but would have done things differently, if only I'd known that Bush would be an imbecile.) In other words, exactly what Kerry said.

    Chelsea is a daughter, not a politician. These aren't Hillary's words.

    And personally, I think Chelsea's right. a vast majority of Democrats make these votes by sticking their fingers in the prevailing wind. Chelsea's remark speaks to that. We have 75% of the country thinking Iraq was a horrible idea. In 2002, 80% of the country was in FAVOR of invading. Doesn't that speak to clairvoyance?

    It's the same thing with Kosovo even. People go along with it because they want to be on the right side of a military victory. No one critiques the way the war is conducted. Clinton was in charge on that one too, and when it started to go badly, and he went after Albright/Berger for screwing it up, he had his share of critics from the other side of the aisle. The clairvoyant statement would have been a defense back then too given how it ultimately turned out.

    Look at these people! They suck each other! They eat each other's saliva and dirt! -- Tsonga people of southern Africa on Europeans kissing.
