11. Clinton was still taking the DLC leadership's position it appears.
Edited on Sat Aug-02-03 07:16 PM by w4rma
Note that Clinton was advising Blair (who is now political toast) during the build up to the Iraq invasion.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair sought advice during the buildup to the war in Iraq from President Bill Clinton, according to published reports.
