Sen. Clinton And Iraq

I said this months ago. Sen. Clinton just echoes John Kerry in her version of her position on the Iraq War. Certainly 2008 is not 2004 and the votes on the war won't loom as large. But this sort of mythology just won't pass the smell test.

Sen. Obama and Hillary have identical voting records on the Iraq war.

That may be true if you pretend that 2003 never happened. Sen. Clinton voted to authorize the use of force in Iraq. She's been good on providing support to the troops, providing body armor and even on redeployment from the region.

But she voted to authorize the use of force (Aka The Iraq War). And Sen. Obama opposed it as he ran for his seat. That's a fact.
