29. And how does working to stop Hillary from taking office in 2009...
...stop Bush from starting a war with Iran in 2008? There is no mention of any Democratic candidate in this email, do you have a problem with it? Same question that I asked another poster above: Would you rather this email not gone out?

Do you realize how crass you are being now to force all talk about stopping a war with Iran into the narrow confines of a Democratic primary fcampaign for President? You react negatively when the wrong thing is said about Iran but you react negatively when the right thing is said about Iran also. It's not Iran that you are reacting to at all, it is all about the contest for President. Do you mind if some of the rest of us try to do something constructive now besides get pissed at this or that Democrat for what they should have done differently?
