    Metamorphosis of a candidate
    We've all heard how "George Bush's war" changed from WMD's to whatever it's said to be now, how Romney and Giuliani have switched their views on certain social issues, but what about Hillary?

    It wasn't that long ago that Hillary was standing by her vote on the Iraq war, that she did what she thought was right at the time. That won't do if she wants to please the Democrat base, so her position has been evolving. Her positions have been:

    "Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."

    That the only way to avoid war was for Saddam to disarm, and "I have absolutely no belief that he will."

    That Saddam would "continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."

    In the first debate she said that "if I knew then what I now know, I would not have voted that way" (to authorize the war).

    By the second debate her vote was really a vote for "coercive diplomacy."

    Hillary won't say whether she read the NIE report on Iraq before she voted. I'm wondering if she even bothered to read the title of the Joint Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq , not to mention the text of the resolution?

    The President is authorized to use the Armed Forces of the United States as he determines to be necessary and appropriate in order to

    (1) defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq; and

    (2) enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions regarding Iraq.
    Yep, sounds like a vote for "coercive diplomacy" to me. By the way, if you've never read the resolution now might be a good time... it was never all about WMD's.

    HillaryHub? Thanks tom, I could have done without the image of "all Hillary, all the time."

Am I A Candidate? [ 26 Answers ]

Don't laugh. I would like to know if I can learn some lite forms of martial arts for self-defense. I think this way because I do not always have a gun handy. I do carry a bat ( short bat ) in my car though. However, I am interested in a one on one Scenario. The funny part is that I will be 54...
