ASSociated Press: Hillary Clinton faces anti-war critics
A liberal crowd both booed and cheered Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton Tuesday after she encouraged Democrats to have a “difficult conversation” about their position on the Iraq war in order to win over middle-of-the-road voters.
Clinton’s attempt to strike a moderate stance on the divisive issue of the war contrasted sharply with the angry words of another potential presidential contender, Sen. John Kerry, the party’s 2004 standard-bearer, who called the war “immoral” and a “quagmire.”
At a speech before a liberal gathering dubbed “Take Back America,” the New York senator took grief from those in the audience critical of her vote for the Iraq war and her opposition to an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops.
“I do not think it is a smart strategy, either, for the president to continue with his open-ended commitment, which I think does not put enough pressure on the new Iraqi government,” said Clinton, before turning to the anti-war liberals’ core beef with her.
“Nor do I think it is smart strategy to set a date certain. I do not agree that that is in the best interests,” said Clinton, prompting loud booing from some at the gathering.
Flap handicaps a 50 per cent chance Hillary is challenged from the LEFT for her 2008 presidency race.
The Moonbat LEFT hates Hillary because of her vote for the Iraq War. You know the war that John Kerry was for before he voted against it…..or whatever.
The Dims are a disaster on the Global War on Terror and no matter who their nominee will be Rudy Giuliani will be the next President.
Stay tuned as Hillary attempts to put out the fires to her LEFT by lashing out at President Bush or embracing Cindy Sheehan.
