19. I'll say this, though I know you weren't asking me

The world was watching what she--probably the most famous Democrat at the time, and as you said, the Senator from NY--would do. If she had stood up and taken a stand and said, "There is NO evidence that Iraq was part of 9/11 so I cannot in good conscience vote for this resolution," I would crawl over broken glass for her.

Yes, she was in a terrible spot, that is the cost of being in a powerful position. She did not have the courage to stand up and do the right thing and was complicit in the death of at least 500,000 people. She may have been vilified at the time, but she would have done the right and moral thing, and so now, less than a decade later, she would have been hailed as a hero and carried on our shoulders to the White House. We expect our leaders, especially a Democrat, to be able to withstand a time of crisis and lead in the direction that is best for the country. If she couldn't then how can she convince us that she can now?
