HILLARY IS TRYING TO DEFINE THE DEMOCRATS RIGHT OUT OF THE PRESIDENCY

BY DEFINING WHAT SHE THINKS IS THE PREREQUISITE FOR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF, HILLARY RISKS DENYING THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION TO OBAMA AND THE PRESIDENCY TO HERSELF SHOULD SHE GET THE NOMINATION.

Hillary Clinton has stated that only she and McCain have the requisite number of years of “experience” to be Commander-in-Chief. Since John McCain has more years of “experience” than she, Hillary becomes his biggest endorser.

Barack Obama clearly demonstrated that he had the superior grasp of foreign affairs and understanding of the impact of military action when he clearly opposed the Iraq invasion in October 2002.

Obama’s opposition to the Iraq invasion was not just a lucky guess. It was backed up by solid understanding, good judgement and common sense.

Obama was cool and logical when he utttered the following words October 26, 2002.

“But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors, that the Iraqi economy is in shambles, that the Iraqi military a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences. I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the Middle East, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaeda.

I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb war.” There is a lot more in the full speech which you may find if you google obama oct 2002 Iraq.

IT IS NOT THE NUMBER OF YEARS SPENT AS FIRST LADY OR ON SOME SENATE COMMITTEE OR EVEN IN THE MILITARY ITSELF BUT AN UNDERSTANDING OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND THE POLITICAL CONSEQUENCES OF MILITARY ACTION THAT IS REQUIRED OF THE CIVILIAN COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF US MILITARY FORCES.
