WHY I'M CONSIDERING VOTING FOR HILLARY: Jay Nordlinger says it all:
I have a friend who, in a phone conversation last weekend, said the unsayable. Come to think of it, this friend makes a specialty of saying the unsayable. That is one reason he is invaluable.
He said, “The Democrats have to win in 2008 — I mean, the whole enchilada: House, Senate, and presidency.” You ought to know that my friend is a staunch conservative Republican. “Why?” I said. “Why do they have to win?” He answered, “Because that’s the only way they will be fully onboard the War on Terror. They won’t fully support it otherwise, because they will always be trying to trip up the Republicans. If you want the Democrats onboard the War on Terror, they have to be in charge. Period.”
It's getting harder to argue with that. And hey, maybe Hillary really will turn out to be "the most uncompromising wartime President in the history of the United States." Plus, Markos doesn't like her.
