I Admire Hillary Clinton

Way back, in the pre-Iraq War days, Hillary Clinton along with John Edwards and many others voted to give Bush authority to go to war against Iraq if indeed Iraq was a threat to us and there was no peaceful way of stopping Iraq from harming us.

War was intended to be a last resort.

We all know now that Bush and Cheney and Rice and Powell lied and lied and lied some more and Bush went to war, not as a last resort, but as a first choice and in reality Iraq was no threat to us at all. Saddam Hussein was not preparing to harm us -- he was hiding in his palaces and writing trashy novels.

Now that Hillary Clinton is a declared candidate for the US Presidency, the way-left loonies in the Democratic Party are threatening not to support her if she does not apologize, like John Edwards did, for the vote giving Bush the above described authority.

And Hillary Clinton told them off. She told them that she voted to give Bush conditional authority and Bush abused the authority. The blame belongs on Bush, not on her. If that's not good enough for some people, they can vote for one of the other guys.

I admire that. I will surely vote for Hillary Clinton, in the primary and in the general election.

BTW, Clinton is way ahead at Intrade: 51 for Hillary, 22 for Obama, 12 for Edwards --- Dems: 57, Repubs: 41, in the Presidential election and Democratic sweeps in both houses of Congress.
