She voted for an illegal, immoral war that has killed tens of thousands of innocents. In doing so, she not only went against the will of her constituents her floor statement...says very clearly why she voted the way she did...

The overwhelming majority of Americans(68%) were not wanting to take any action, including a vote on the IWR, until the inspectors had gone in and done their job. Millions of people across the country and worldwide were out in the streets, loudly saying no.

We live in a Republic not a democracy...If you asked the American public 160 years ago whether the slaves should be freed it would have been an overwhelming no. We pay our representatives to use their own judgement. SOmetimes they are right sometimes they are wrong...and certainly the American people need to be listened too, but their judgement is often just as wrong.

Furthermore, she has and does continue to support this illegal, immoral war through her consistent votes in favor of continuing to fund it.

Wrong...and defunding would only hurt the troops at this point

No responsible Democrats...including Russ Feingold supports an immediate fact the only difference between Hillary and Russ Feingold is in setting a strict timetable.

"But at least Kerry had the good goddamn grace to admit what he did was a mistake"

As did Hillary...she just didn't apologize..which is the politically cowardly thing to do...she has nothing to apologize for...George Bush does...

Do you believe Max Cleland voted for the IWR for his own political viability? I want to know if you think this about all Democrats who voted for the IWR for the same reason Hillary did...or just the ones you did not like!
