29. A vote for the IWR...
Does not constitute a person who "continues to support this war in word and deed up unto today." A cursory look at her statements from her floor statement announcing her IWR vote up to the present day is ample evidence of this.

You also need to learn your history...war opponents began their division with resentment on the part of McCarthy supporters that Bobby Kennedy jumped into the race after promising he would not...

And to describe Hubert Humphrey as a war hawk is laughable. He was tainted by his association with LBJ, the result of his following through on a promise he made at the time he was chosen to be his running mate, not to oppose Johnson in public...a tradition that remains to this day. But in the '68 race Humphrey clearly distanced himself from LBJ's policies, advocating an end to the war. So to call him a war hawk is ridiculous. Just as it is ridiculous to call Hillary a war hawk...it is just not true!
