Hillary Stumbles on Iraq

Has Hillary sealed her fate and put the last nail in her coffin and removed any chance she might have had of becoming the first woman president of the United States? The New York Times reported last Saturday that her 2002 vote in favor of the resolution authorizing Bush to use force in Iraq has brought division among her advisors as they all try to figure out which spin will be most advantageous. It was a mere two months ago that Hillary began speaking out against the war and even then it was only to dance around a bit. She did a Kerry saying if she had known then what she knows now she would not have voted to give Bush authority to use force in Iraq. During a campaign appearance last Saturday in NH, she went even further telling the audience if her vote on the resolution was that important to them there were other candidates to support who had either admitted they made a mistake or had voted against the resolution. I certainly applaud the gutsy move but I do think it was stupid and could prove to be her undoing. I will write more on Hillary later but in the meantime, let me know what you think.
