Scott Ritter REALLY wants to be quoted in my blog

Otherwise, why would he say this?
Let there be no doubt that Hillary Clinton is about as slippery a species of politician that exists, one who has demonstrated an ability to morph facts into a nebulous blob which blurs the record and distorts the truth. While she has demonstrated this less than flattering ability on a number of issues, nowhere is it so blatant as when dealing with the issue of the ongoing war in Iraq and Hillary Clinton's vote in favor of this war.

This issue won't be resolved even if Hillary Clinton apologizes for her Iraq vote, as other politicians have done, blaming their decision on faulty intelligence on Iraq's WMD capabilities. This is because, like many other Washington politicians at the time, including those now running for president, she had been witness to lies about Iraq's weapons programs to justify attacks on that country by her husband President Bill Clinton and his administration.
Ritter goes on to explain how Ma and Pa Clinton thwarted his inspection teams and ignored evidence for years in order to keep the Regime Change Express on track so that Engineer Bush could eventually crash it into the station.

Chris Floyd writes of the strange friendship between the Bushes and the Clintons, and points out:
So now we face the distinct possibility of the continued rule of these intertwined Houses for the next four or even eight years, which would give us almost a quarter-century of Clinton-Bush corruption, deception, aggression and incompetence. Ritter is right to speak out, to remind us once again of the role that the Clinton Machine played in dragging us into the hell of our present day.

If Hillary stops running for pResident, I'll stop complaining about her

Sorry. I will make an effort not to have this blog become exclusively an anti-Hillary screed, but I'm just flabbergasted that this sleazeball detested by 3/4 of America is even remotely considered to be pResident, much less the frontrunner for 2008. Plus, I saw this Hillary quote about her 2002 Iraq vote over at WIIIAI: "My vote was a sincere vote based on the facts and assurances that I had at the time."

So I felt compelled to leave a comment, and then further compelled to post it here:
I suspect that one of Hillary's "assurances that [she] had at the time," probably from Bill, is that her yes vote would help her become pResident. And I'm sure she sincerely believed that.

I'd like to see her list the "facts" she had at the time, and then ask her to define "facts."

She most certainly DOESN'T deserve an apology, or a vote

Cartoonist Tony Auth seems to think that Hillary was clueless in 2002:

Absurd. When Hillary voted in favor of the Iraq war in October 2002, Bush had already misled us into one war (Afghanistan) and botched that occupation completely. The Constitution was already being trashed, with Hillary's help, through the Patriot Act, the indefinite detention of so-called "detainees" and "enemy combatants," including US citizens like Jose Padilla, and illegal wiretapping. W's incompetence was there for anyone to see--the failure to stop 9/11, the failure to capture Osama even though trashing an entire country for that express purpose, or, for that matter, every time he opened his mouth. There are only two explanations for Hillary's 2002 vote: either she's too stupid to see the obvious, or she's been on Bush's side all along. I suspect the latter, but in either case, Hillary doesn't deserve an apology. In the first case, she should simply be relegated to the trash heap of history, babbling her nonsense in venues far from Washington. In the latter case, she deserves a cell at Gitmo down the hall from Bush's and Cheney's.
