More Smart Democrats

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley:

"Were people wrong when they fought Hitler?" he asked. "He didn't do anything against us. He didn't invade the United States."

So Daley, whose son, Patrick, is in the U.S. Army, supports the war in Iraq?

"I didn't say that," the mayor responded. "I support the men and women in the military."

But then he added, "We can't just leave the Middle East. If we leave the Middle East, just let's just forget about the Middle East and just walk away from the Middle East. I don't think anybody wants that."

Hillary Clinton comes in for some respect from Rick Moran:

In fact, there’s a decided chill in the air in hell these days. I say this because Hillary Clinton’s recent comments about Iraq actually make some sense and are worthy of serious consideration.

Now before many of my right-leaning friends stage an intervention and try to get me to voluntarily commit myself for 6 months of aromatherapy, let me make matters worse by saying I don’t believe that what Hillary is trying to accomplish is necessarily a poll-driven exercise in moderation. In fact, while her continued support for the war has more qualifiers than a pill bottle’s warning label, I would like to point out that she is opposed to a rigid timetable for withdrawal and in support of pretty much the same formula for victory that President Bush has recently outlined.

If this is a calculated move on her part to make herself more acceptable to the broad middle in American politics, I should remind you that she is agreeing with a President with a 42% approval rating, a man who demonstrably is in trouble with those same middle of the road Americans that are absolutely necessary to achieve victory in any race for the White House.

An analogy to Texas Holdem seems in order. In Texas Holdem, which has become extremely popular in local bars, there are always the flashy, "I'm all in!" types. And then there are the slow and steady players. The final table usually works out to a mix of the two, but if you pay attention, there were a lot more of the all-in players at the beginning of the night.

The politicians trying to score points on Iraq are pushing their chips towards the middle of the table. Hillary's sitting back, knowing she doesn't need to win this particular pot, not with three years to go till the election.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
