Schneider: Clinton running from the past

She’s arguing that she supported the threat of force as a means of avoiding conflict. That’s a complicated case to make – and it still leaves the question: why did she think President Bush had the same judgment she did?

But here’s a new angle she hasn’t used before in these debates: that she would never have contemplated an invasion of Iraq. It’s another way of trying to draw a distinction between her views and the president’s. She’s running from the past.

    Thank god the president of the united states is an executive position-not a legislative one. We all know Hillary's judgment is sound. Obama's tricks aren't going to work.

    Does the fact that Hillary removed things not rightfully hers from the White House bother anybody other than me?

    I endorsed Hillary from the beginning. I was excited to see her go for the presidency. Then Obama came, and gave me hope. I have been done with Hillary ever since. Plus, i was upset she voted for a bill to do the same thing with Iran. Not happy. Also, at least, when Obama missed a vote, he apologized right away. No, Hillary wouldn't do that. I just don't trust her,a nd I really liked her at one point. But Obama just looks like what we need now, she should have ran in 2004, I would have voted for her then.
