Clinton concedes role in authorizing war

Clinton says authorizing Bush's war was a mistake, but says that he misused the authorization.

No Shit. Did anyone expect this president to do otherwise. Bill could have told her that the Bushites were hell-bent on carrying out a Neocon plan which he had seen and refused to act on.

Senator Clinton needs to get real!

Clinton concedes role in authorizing war - Yahoo! News:

DES MOINES, Iowa - New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton blamed President Bush on Saturday for misusing authority given him by Congress to act in Iraq, but conceded 'I take responsibility' for her role in allowing that to happen.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Clinton also said she would not cede black votes to Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record) and that she had proven as a U.S. senator that gender is irrelevant.

Of her husband, the former president, she said he would have a role in the campaign but 'I'm the one running for president.'

Clinton was making her first campaign swing through this early nominating state, which twice voted for
Bill Clinton for president. She met with key activists and held a raucous town hall meeting with 1,500 cheering backers and hundreds of journalists.

'I have said clearly and consistently for quite some time that I regret the way the president misused the authority,' said Clinton. 'He misled Congress and the country on what he was seeking and what he intended to do.'

The responsibility Clinton said she accepts was helping clear the way for Bush's path in Iraq.
