Is he in Iowa making comments that he never supported the war even though he made multiple comments that supported W after the invasion? Is H telling Iowa voters that he's mad at W for cutting taxes on the wealthy since it didn't allow him to support the military? When comments like those are made on day one, and circumstances like this arise on day two, I would be remiss to not link the Clintons together.
The fact that they can do one thing and say another so openly just makes me laugh. It really is funny.
But Bush sucks, too. Now, back to the OP. I'll change the title to make it more relevant and less sweeping, okay, Art?
I just don't understand why people continue to lump the Clintons together "they" are not running for president, she is. How does Bill Clinton changing his mind (or at least his public stance) about an issue over the last eight years reflect poorly on Hillary? I don't get it. I'll let his actions contribute to my opinion of him, and hers shape my view of her.
Also, the General in question has said that he was not told or encouraged to ask that question by anyone from the Clinton campaign. Unless evidence to the contrary comes out, I'm inclined to believe him. I don't think being a member of a steering committe should make someone unable to voice their own opinion on an issue.
I'm not even a fan of Clinton whatsoever (either of them), but it smacks of hypocricy to judge one candidate by the actions of her husband, but not do so with the other candidates. Bill Clinton isn't the only spouse on the campaign trail, but since the Clintons aren't Bill and Hillary, they're "they" it's somehow okay to lump his views in with hers and judge her for it. Somehow I doubt it would be news it came out that Michelle Obama has changed her mind on an issue in the last eight years.
