“…everything changed when the candidates were allowed to ask each other questions. Clinton seized the opportunity to turn her Achilles heel into a strength by asking Obama to join her in cosponsoring a bill “to reign in President Bush,” and force him to come before Congress with any plans that would prolong the U.S. commitment in Iraq. It was a brilliant tactical move, a sweeping gesture intended to blur the huge advantage Obama has as the only one of the three to have opposed the war from the beginning.”
I watched this exchange and literally laughed. No matter how much Clinton backpedals and retracts these days, the fact remains that she was one of the GREAT ENABLERS of Bush’s Iraq fiasco. I can’t remember what Obama said, but he didn’t laugh. That would have been the correct response. Do people really believe that this question from Hillary somehow changes people’s perception of the difference between Clinton and Obama on Iraq?
