Great news! The New York Times has boldly endorsed Hillary Clinton. Such a daring move from the Grey Lady.
I'm watching a replay of the Republican debate in Boca Raton earlier tonight. This is why Hillary Clinton will not win: Giuliani just explained how in 2002, when the polls showed that a majority of Americans supported the war, Hillary Clinton also supported it. And now, when polls show that a majority of Americans are against the war, Hillary Clinton is now apparently against the war. (Although, she has yet to admit that her vote in favor of war in 2002 was a mistake.)
Let's watch and remember that glorious day, October 10, 2002:
And she thoughtfully wore black for her vote of steely resolve and "conviction" -- in favor of preemptive war against a country that had never attacked, and posed no threat to, the United States.
Let's have a "reality check" and a simple question, Senator Clinton: was this vote a mistake? Was it in fact a vote in support of the biggest foreign policy debacle in the history of the United States? (You don't think they're going to be asking this question this fall?)
How do you think this is going to play out in the general election, friends? Let us look back again:
Now let us recall Obama's judgment on the Iraq War, from his speech of October 2, 2002, eight days before Hillary's fateful and fatally misguided vote in support of war.
As Hillary Clinton would put it, “some of us were right and some of us were wrong.” I refuse to watch the Democrats go down in defeat yet again because we are all held in thrall by conventional wisdom to support the candidate of conventional wisdom.
Octopus Grigori endorses Barack Obama for President.
