Skip to comments.Clinton's Hawkishness Ruffles Feathers in Obama Camp

Mr. Keane nevertheless said he holds the former first lady in high esteem.
"Senator Clinton is very knowledgeable about national security and is probably going to be strong on defense," he said. "I have no doubts whatsoever that if she were president in January '09 she would not act irresponsibly and issue orders to conduct an immediate withdrawal from Iraq, regardless of the consequences, and squander the gains that have been made." Mr. Keane added that he could not imagine any president in the White House making that kind of decision.
The senator's campaign differed with that assessment. "Senator Clinton speaks for herself on her plans to end the Iraq war," the campaign's communication director, Howard Wolfson, said Sunday. "She has said she will end the war the right way, swiftly and responsibly, and beginning within 60 days of taking office."
Indeed, Mrs. Clinton's Web site features her plan to "begin ending this war not next year, not next month but today." She has pledged to call together her military and national security team to draw up plans to "bring our troops home starting with the first 60 days of her Administration."
Throughout 2007, Mrs. Clinton has sought to distance herself from her vote in 2002 to authorize the use of force in Iraq, a resolution that she says was intended to create leverage for negotiations with Iraq at the U.N. Security Council, but was widely considered by almost all other observers as a resolution authorizing the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Ouch! With friends like this who needs a Republican opponent?
Kean told the New York Sun this past weekend: I have no doubts whatsoever that if she were president in January 09 she would not act irresponsibly and issue orders to conduct an immediate withdrawal from Iraq, regardless of the consequences, and squander the gains that have been made.
He also said Clinton generally supported the surge strategy in the sense she wanted it to succeed but she was skeptical about its chances.
Now, how is Hillary Clinton supposed to win over the peaceful terrorists who bombed a recruiting station this week? Hows Code Pink gonna deal with that? How about ANSWER or party insiders like Gov Dean?

“Hussein can you see...?”
Is there anybody out there crazy enough to want this woman in charge of our national defense? I guess Bill’s Chinese berets will go along nicely with the new French style military... when in trouble call for help. What is the international 911 number anyway?
Copied from another thread.............
More direct link ...lots of scrolling on the other link required:
And here is a link to the bad boys:
your virtual activists' Convergence Center for the Denver Democratic National Convention of 2008. This website was created for all the grassroots people who are tired of being sold out by the Democratic Party.
R-68 agrees with the proposition, POTESTAS IN POPULO, "all power comes from the people." What stands between the people and power are the party machines. The parties were devised as a means to represent the people. Today they represent nobody, not even party members, but only party bureaucracy. The people have been left without appropriate institutions for their representation. We intend to create those institutes!
Actually her vote for the war and her hawkishness is a good thing.
I think so,...but those on the Left don’t see it that way....and she needs their votes in the primary....
Hello,.. United States Marine Corps.
And just how do these idiots plan to end the "occupation" of North America?
The hippies’ second childhood is the worst thing to happen to the country since their first.
The “R-68” Alliance is made up of activists locally known as the All Nations Alliance. The All Nations Alliance sponsored the Denver City Council resolution that made Denver the first major city in the country to take a stand in opposition to the Patriot Act and was also instrumental in exposing the Denver Spy Files and the J.T.T.F.’s and F.B.I.’s role in those files, in addition to organizing numerous anti-war, anti-racism, anti-imperialism rallies actions and protest including the G-8 protest in Denver!
Whose this Keane turd?
This requires the Suspension Of Disbelief
