78. You talking about the Israel thing?
He didn't change his position. He clarified.
Or was it the Cuba thing? Who cares? It's not an important issue, certainly not a defining one.
We're dealing with a war here. And while I like what they've got on meetclark, I just remember seeing Clark doing play-by-play on TV during the war. I remember hoping the guy would get some cajones and take a stand, but he never did, and while I didn't think he was ACTUALLY going to run for president at that point, I took note that I didn't see leadership from him at a very important time.
And it was a VERY important time to me. It was one of the most trying things I've ever been through. I was called "unAmerican" by angry, yelling people more than once. But I knew what was right, and I knew I was right. I had faith in myself, and I wasn't going to give into social pressure when I felt so strongly about the issue.
It defined real strength for me.
I'm sorry, but when it comes to the war, I'm voting for someone who was always clearly against it. That kind of integrity (a kind of mixture of faith, courage, honesty and real values), when it comes to something as serious as war, is the most important thing to me right now. And it's what I'm voting for when I vote for Dean.
