Senator Clinton on the War

For an interesting and fairly detailed account of Senator Hillary Clinton's votes and public statements on the war in Iraq, see Matthew Continetti here.

Though Senator Clinton has wavered from her early strong support of the war effort, she remains far more hawkish than most Democrats. That stance will likely hurt her in her party's primaries, but, should she survive that drag on her candidacy and earn the nomination, it will help her in the general election.

Ten years ago, if anyone had suggested that Hillary Clinton would go into 2008 firmly established as her party's leading moderate, most observors would have laughed openly. Yet, that now seems likely to be the case.
