Schneider: A convenient civility for Clinton


Schneider: Clinton is vulnerable on the issue of Iraq. (Photo Credit: Getty Images)

It took more than an hour for Iraq to make a real appearance, other than Obama’s brief mention earlier. Once again, Clinton is pointing out their similarities – but this time, it’s a necessity. She’s vulnerable here.

Among Democrats, Obama always wins on this issue. His position is clearer, and he has far less baggage.

    I've worked as a crisis counselor for many years and I must point out...
    Baggage dealt with by a strong person creates WISDOM.

    Let's not be so obsessed with this concept of radical change that we neglect wisdom.
    Radical change means a lot of "Trial and error" haven't we had enough of that.
    We need a strong, stable and progressive president...not another cowboy.

    The less experience you have, the less baggage you have.

    Bill, I have always admired you and looked forward to your political analysis, but your bias in favor of Obama really is over the top. In order to be an effective political commentator, you need to be impartial. Your dislike of Hillary comes through loud and clear.
