Clinton’s waterloo
Posted by: mcq on Thursday, May 17, 2007

Hillary Clinton is going to have to pick a side, because all of these attempts at playing both sides of the Iraq issue is making her look weak and indecisive:
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton voted Wednesday to advance legislation cutting off money for the Iraq war, then refused to pledge to support the measure if it came to a vote, then said she would.

At lunchtime, the New York senator and presidential candidate was asked repeatedly by reporters whether she favored the troop withdrawal legislation that had just come up for a procedural vote on the Senate floor.

Her answer: "I'm not going to speculate on what I'm going to be voting on in the future. I voted in favor of cloture to have a debate."

By supper time, she had a different answer.

"I support the underlying bill," she said. "That's what this vote on cloture was all about."

A rival Democratic camp quickly criticized Clinton's evolving — and possibly revolving — statements.

"We're as confused as anyone on Senator Clinton's position," said Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd (news, bio, voting record)'s campaign spokeswoman, Christy Setzer.

"Frankly, it's hard to know whether it's indecision, miscommunication or simple word games and political gamesmanship we're dealing with. Our troops in Iraq don't have time for poll-tested word games," Setzer said.
SMACK!

That is a microcosm of the Democratic position(s?) on Iraq. And they make themselves look worse and worse when they refuse to stand up and take a position. Regardless of your opinion of Russ Feingold, the one thing you can't say is you don't know where he stands on Iraq. As for Hillary Clinton?

Well, what day is it? This will indeed come back to haunt her.

Was she not paying attention to Mr. Flip Flop 3 years ago????

Why, is she running an office pool? For someone so hostile to stereotyping of women(she don’t bake no cookies), she certainly seems to cling to her womanly right to change her mind.
