WASHINGTON (CNN) - Filmmaker Michael Moore weighed in on the Democratic presidential race on the eve of the Iowa caucuses, issuing no official endorsements but sharply criticizing Hillary Clinton.
In a message on his Web site Wednesday, Moore said her inauguration would be a "thrilling sight," but said "nothing has disappointed me more than the disastrous, premeditated vote by Sen. Hillary Clinton to send us to war in Iraq - Do you want a president who is so easily misled?"
The Michigan native has long had complicated emotions with regard to the former first lady - his first book contained a chapter titled "My Forbidden Love for Hillary." He also said Wednesday he was unhappy with her for not agreeing to speak with him for a Rolling Stone article earlier this year.
In his message, Moore said Dennis Kucinich shared his views on most issues, "(although the UFO that picked ME up would only take me as far as Kalamazoo).
"But let's not waste time talking about Dennis. Even he is resigned to losing," said Moore.
He said that "Sen. Obama has a big heart, and that heart is in the right place," but questioned his electability, adding that "He's such a feel-good kinda guy, I get the sense that, if elected, the Republicans will eat him for breakfast."
He had special praise for John Edwards and his anti-corporate rhetoric.
"It's hard to get past the hair, isn't it? But once you do - and recently I have chosen to try - you find a man who is out to take on the wealthy and powerful who have made life so miserable for so many."
But the notoriously disgruntled Democrat expressed pessimism over his party's general election chances. "[W]e know that the Democrats are experts at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, and if there's a way to blow this election, they will find it and do it with gusto."
