The following is a direct quote from Hillary Clinton, the current forerunner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination:
"The American military has succeeded. It is the Iraqi government which has failed to make the tough decisions that are important for their own people.''
This is a frightening statement, a malevolent irony. It is a statement that typifies the ceaseless flip-flop psyche of the eminent Democratic candidates... The frenzied power grabbing, the apparent lack of self-awareness or societal obligation... The ideological stagnation that could yet mortally wound the Democratic nominee in 2008.
Yes, this is a frightening statement, and this is a fear I share with Democratic candidate Mike Gravel. Read this article. Compelling:
Senator Mike Gravel: Why Hillary Scares Me - The Huffington Post.
One can but hope that Gravel will receive the Democratic nomination. Not a single other Democratic candidate (or Republican) comes close to matching the gravitas and sense of duty that this man exudes. Please Americans, make it so.
I, for one, am getting tired of the fuck ups.
