Hillary's Foreign Policy

I'm not crazy about Hillary Clinton, but if we have to have a Dem as President come 2009, I would rather have her than any of the other candidates.

Clinton has released her foreign policy document and it seems to hit all the right themes: blending a democratic belief in civil and human rights with strong sense of security and toughness. Someone once commented that the first female president would have to be a "tough guy," and Senator Clinton seems to be showing that.

This doesn't mean I'm going to vote for her, but I do think that of all the Democrats she is the one who will steer path away from the Bush shipwreck and yet is not beholden to the Ron Paul-Dennis Kucinich view of the world that seems to dominate the Dems.

Hillary is better than Edwards, who made the remark that the 'War on Terror is nothing more than a bumper sticker'. He is unfit to hold any office. Obama is just as radically liberal.

Hillary has been running for the center. This is very smart and makes her appealing; however, the question is whether she will actually govern that way.

As a woman and a Democrat, I believe if Hillary was elected President, she would be a disater. She is tough, maybe too hard and with the attitude in the middle east towards women, we need a man.. not a time to tick off the culture there with a wild eyed and hard woman... give me someone who is not running yet please.
