Hillary promises to end war if elected President:
“Believe me, I understand the frustration and the outrage,” Clinton said in a speech to the Democratic National Committee meeting that brought the party’s nine White House hopefuls together for the first time. “You have to have 60 votes to cap troops, to limit funding to do anything. If we in Congress don’t end this war before January 2009, as president, I will.”
Only a democrat can say things like this. Even though she voted FOR the war, as President she wouldn’t have gone TO war:
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday she would not have attacked Iraq if she were president in 2002 and would end the war if elected, as she tried to blunt rivals like John Edwards who are stoking anti-war passions in the Democratic Party.
Other democrat candidates talked ‘cut & run’ policies:
Barack HUSSEIN Obama:
Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois reminded the party’s rank-and-file - twice - that he was against the Iraq invasion from the beginning.
“But whether you were for it or against it then, we all have a responsibility now to put forth a plan that offers the best chance of ending the bloodshed and bringing the troops home,” Obama told the audience.
John “2 Americas”Edwards:
Edwards voted with Clinton in 2002 to authorize Bush’s war against Iraq, a vote he defended during his 2004 presidential race but has since said was a mistake. The former North Carolina senator has gone from being a war apologist to one of the most outspoken critics of the invasion in this campaign.
“Silence is a betrayal,” Edwards said, one of 11 times he used the word betrayal in his 18-minute speech. “It is a betrayal not to stop this president’s plan to escalate the war when we have the responsibility, the power and the ability to stop it. We cannot be satisfied with passing nonbinding resolutions that we know this president will ignore.”
Ted Kennedy’s drinking buddy Chris Dodd:
-- 'The Commish' A.J. Sparxx
“I don’t believe spending a week debating a nonbinding resolution is the change that America voted for” in November when Democrats won a majority in Congress, Dodd said. “With all due respect, a real bill and real teeth and real accountability is what is needed in our country again.”
