Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
"Hillary is the neocon's neocon. It's going to be fascinating if she decides to run and she gets the nomination, that she will be more of a sabre-rattler and more of a neocon that the Republican nominee. Is that not the case? There's hardly been a military engagement that Hillary hasn't been for in the past 20 years."
Once I reluctantly accepted that Sen. Warren isn't running for Prez, Hillary became the obvious choice. The GOP will have at least eight legit (for them) candidates to choose from. We will have one. If it keeps us in the White House, I am okay with that. I love primaries, but it appears she will escape a serious challenge from the left.
Joe Scar knows this. Part of me feels like he is just trying to stir up shit. Along with a lot of other Dems, then Sen. Clinton voted to authorize the use of force in Iraq. A mistake in hindsight? Sure. But that hardly makes her a Neocon. Is he seriously saying that she is the same as Rummy, Kristol, Wolfowitz, Rice and Cheney? If so, what does that make President Obama and Sec. Kerry?
It is moments like this that I'm glad MCNBC's ratings are so low. This definitely feeds into the "Hillary is evil" meme some on the "no wars for any reason" left like to push. As of now, she will be our standard-bearer and we owe it to her and the party to make sure shit like this doesn't go unanswered once the campaign is under way. She has to keep somewhat of a low profile until maybe spring of 2015 to avoid over shadowing BHO. But after that, imagine how long her coattails will be in 2016 if we support her 110%.
JoeScar can go f**k himself. HRC a Neocon? Not even close.
