OK …..LET’S START WITH OBAMA’S OCTOBER 26,2002 SPEECH.

HILLARY HAS SAID THAT OBAMA’S ONLY CLAIM TO FAME IS HIS 2002 SPEECH

I submit that , Obama demonstrated, EVEN BY HILLARY’S DEFINITION, even before he was a US Senator, that his grasp of foreign affairs and understanding of the political and military consequences of the Iraq invasion was far superior to that of people with decades of military and political “experience ” in Washington. Obama not only had the relavant knowledge but the requisite judgement to arrive at the right conclusion and answer to the problem.

If anyone has demonstrated that he has the knowledge, intelligence, common sense and judgement to handle that hypothetical 3 AM phone call it is Barack Obama.

Some of the relavant observations in Obama’s 2002 speech are the following.
(for the full speech ,google obama oct 2002 iraq)

“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 wars.”

IF YOU LIKE DUMB WARS, VOTE FOR HILLARY OR McCAIN WHO VOTED FOR ONE.

At least Hillary now agrees with Obama that the Iraq war was a dumb war . McCain insists on pursuing that idiocy.

For that reason, if God forbid, Hillary gets the nomination, I will hold my nose and vote for her instead of McCain even if she is encouraging people to vote for McCain if Obama should get the nomination.
