Subject: RE: BS: Election results
Today on NPR they were talking about Hillary finally backing away from the pro-war stance. I've always been dismayed and puzzled that she would hold the position she has--it seems to be based upon information that none of the rest of us could see. And since so much of what Bush was peddling was also out of view (and as it happens, non-existent, not "facts" but speculation about Iraq), it did put her in a troubling position. One of those troubling darker shades of gray in a world that some of our members can only see as black and white.

Lincoln Chafee should have made the switch before now. Maybe staying put was a calculated move to try to put the brakes on what Bush was doing, but it was that darned label that got in the way. The old Aesop fable comes to mind, that you're judged by the company you keep.
