Clinton Gives War Critics New Answer on ’02 Vote

One of the most important decisions that Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton made about her bid for the presidency came late last year when she ended a debate in her camp over whether she should repudiate her 2002 vote authorizing military action in Iraq. Several advisers, friends and donors said in interviews that they had urged her to call her vote a mistake in order to appease antiwar Democrats, who play a critical role in the nominating process. Yet Mrs. Clinton herself, backed by another faction, never wanted to apologize — even if she viewed the war as a mistake — arguing that an apology would be a gimmick. In the end, she settled on language that was similar to Senator John Kerry’s when he was the Democratic nominee in 2004: that if she had known in 2002 what she knows now about Iraqi weaponry, she would never have voted for the Senate resolution authorizing force. Yet antiwar anger has festered, and yesterday morning Mrs. Clinton rolled out a new response to those demanding contrition: She said she was willing to lose support from voters rather than make an apology she did not believe in. “If the most important thing to any of you is choosing someone who did not cast that vote or has said his vote was a mistake, then there are others to choose from,” Mrs. Clinton told an audience in Dover, N.H., in a veiled reference to two rivals for the nomination, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois and former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina.

How Scary is that ! I agree with Mrs. Clinton. She has never apologized for her mistakes like smooching Mrs. Arafat after the terrorist’s wife made an unfounded charge against Israel (she made excuses but never apologized) Or the other mistake, like being the first White House Official EVER to call for a Palestinian State. As the NY senator says, Those are my opinions and If you don’t like it vote elsewhere. Well there you go my fellow tribe members. Hilary thinks what she thinks. And If you believe in Israel…DON”T vote for her.
