Well, what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn't one today.

The Mrs. asked me last night why I have a problem with Hillary Clinton's candidacy. Here's a perfect example.

NEW YORK -- Calling Iran a danger to the U.S. and one of Israel's greatest threats, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said "no option can be taken off the table" when dealing with that nation.

A comment that will of course be rubbed in our faces as the bombs fall on Tehran.

Memo to Hillary: when it comes to this administration there IS no other option other than the use of military force. Someone who was more interested in the future of this country rather than their own political future might take just a couple of moments to take a look at recent history and realize this.

I don't care who her audience is. When her comments are removed from their context and added to a long list of Democratic politicians who "supported" the attacks on Iran by conservative knuckle-draggers next year it won't really matter. Equivocation on matters of war is killing this country.

She can run, but she won't win the Democratic nomination. It's going to be interesting in any case.

As many have pointed out, the Clintons have been as hawkish as the current administration and just as much in the pocket of AIPAC.

Their only advantage over Bush is brains.

Yes, but considering this advantage is pretty much shared by all mammals I'm not sure they get points for it.

I hope you're right. Most of the Democratic senators seem to be way out of touch with the majority of voters right now. They seem to think the center is somewhere to the right of their base. Unfortunately most of America is right there with them on Iraq.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

I just watched Groundhog Day. I love that movie. Bill Murray can do no wrong. Is there political content to this post? I didn't notice.

Groundhog Day is a much more interesting topic than Hillary Clinton.

No, you pretty much got it Overdroid.
