Hope or Despair?
Hillary Rodham Clinton positioned herself as a leading war-policy critic heading into the 2008 White House race yesterday by raking the top U.S. commander in Iraq over the coals - insisting, "Hope is not a strategy."
Were those some kind of Freudian slams against her hubby (the man from hope), her possible '08 opponent (Barack Obama) or Michael J. Fox (who gives false hope with his fantasy embryonic stem cell cures)?
I do love how General John Abizaid countered Hillary's pontification....
"When I come to Washington, I feel despair. When I'm in Iraq with my commanders, when I talk to our soldiers, when I talk to the Iraqi leadership, they are not despairing."
I think more of the country will be feeling that despair from Washington after the Dummycrat Congress takes over in January.
