My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


More Hillary Positioning

Hillary Clinton was among those Senators in Baghdad today. As the reports of terrorist attacks were streaming in, she had this to say:

The fact that you have these suicide bombers now, wreaking such hatred and violence while people pray, is to me, an indication of their failure.

Now, it could be that she is again demonstrating an unusual ability to see reality--unusual, at least, for a leading Democrat. And, I suppose it could be fairly said that despite her domestic policy record, Hillary does have a tendency toward hawkishness on foreign affairs.

Or, it could be that, like her rhetoric in regards to abortion of a couple weeks ago, she is merely trying to position herself as the most moderate and reasonable Democrat in the leadup to 2008.

Sadly, the competition for "moderate and reasonable Democrat" is, shall we say, thin.
