    Yeah, Mulling It Over, that approach worked so well in 2000, didn't it?


    Seen in my recent comments. (?)

    I think there is significance to this vote whether you think it plays a big role or not. Putting her on the national stage against a McCain might be tough since she has swayed in the past on a difficult vote like this one - where as Obama has not.

    Obama was against the war, adamantly so. I was at University of Chicago in 2002-2003 and I know people who worked with Obama in the anti-war effort.
    Voting to fund troops on the battlefield who need supplies and armor is completely distinct from supporting the war in 2002-2003, when Bush and company were pitching it.

    "fund[ing] troops on the battlefield who need supplies and armor" is not what the appropriations are about. They are about funding the war. Sending supplies and armor is a very small portion.

    And what do you think those supplies and armor are for, anyway? They are for continuing a brutal war and occupation.

    Please. Someone who is "adamantly against the war" in more than rhetoric wouldn't vote to support it. He would man up and insist that if the military can't afford supplies and armor, it leave the battlefield. This "support the troops" canard is what keeps them dying halfway 'round the world.

    Regrettably, the Democrats – nay, let's not grace them with that word, but rather call them members of the Democratic Party – of my state were not concerned even with the subtle difference between HIllary and Barack on the Iraq War.

    By what looks like almost 10 points, California preferred the candidate who either (1) was into the war from before it even started OR (2) was too stupid to know what Bush was actually up to. Maybe Barack didn't do so well because he became gung-ho for the war only afterward ("I give you billions of dollars, George Bush!"), and didn't support it from the beginning.

    Who says California is a liberal state? We've put several of the most prominent Republicans into power: Reagan, Schwarzenegger and Clinton.

    @brokenface You realize he was an ob/gyn, right?

    Oh, please, huckablue! Making Hillary sound like she was so stupid as to believe Bush had an ounce of sense or trustworthiness only makes her look worse. In fact, she was into the war and voted for it. We're still going to vote for her over McCain if she's the nominee, as the lesser of two evils. But go sell your "definition of what is is" somewhere else. We're not buying.

    I'm not letting Obama off the hook either, mind you. He's voted for the war every chance he's had, in all the funding bills, best I can tell. But I'll vote for him over McCain, too.

    And, incidentally, if you are going to come stroke us with technicalities, get them right. The resolution for which Hillary voted did not give the president "authority to declare war." It gave him the authority to make war. Even if it did purport to give him the authority to declare war, it would probably be unconstitutional delegation.

    Oh, and why did "the American public want[] war" back then? Because of the propaganda of the Bush administration, which Hillary aided and abetted by her vote.
