A letter I received from Senator Clinton regarding Iraq


Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding Iraq . As you indicate, the situation there is very serious and is a major and constant focus of mine.

I believe that the President should abandon his escalation of the war and begin a phased redeployment of our troops out of Iraq . In late May, I voted against a second version of the supplemental appropriations bill because it failed to compel the President to give our troops a new strategy in Iraq . I fully support our troops, and wish that the President had followed the will of the American people and signed the original bill Congress sent to the White House in April, which would have both funded the troops and set us on a new course of phased redeployment.

In the Senate, I will continue to seek responsible ways to force the President to change course and begin to bring our troops home. In May, I announced that I would join with Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia in co-sponsoring legislation to set an expiration date of October 11, 2007 for the authorization for the use of force in Iraq . I believe that a full reconsideration of the terms and conditions of that authorization is overdue. This bill would do just that by requiring the President to ask Congress for a new authorization if the Administration seeks to continue the war.

Yada yada yada!

The funny thing about Hillary is, if she had voted against the war in Iraq, she would have been a slam dunk lock for the Presidency.

Peace

Good for you....A patriot lib or RIGHT lol gets involved...While I dont agree that a vote against the war would make her the next POTUS.....a woman is not going to win for at least 2 more cycles IMHO....I do think that it says something that she is sticking to her get out strategy.
